Public Campaign is dedicated to sweeping campaign reform that will dramatically reduce the role of big special interest money in American politics. It is laying the foundation for this reform by working to expand the money in politics movement, linking groups working on environment, civil rights, economic justice, and other issues to the issue of democracy and money in the pursuit of federal and state policy reform. The organization provides research and messaging linking other issues to money in politics, ensuring a consistent public narrative on the range of problems private money generates in our political system. Compton funds will allow the organization to expand its capacity to partner with organizations in other movements and to launch a new training program.
