Mission Statement

Common Cause is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, citizens' lobbying organization promoting open, honest, and accountable government. Supported by the dues and contributions of nearly 300,000 members and supporters in every state across the nation, Common Cause represents the unified voice of the people against corruption in government and big-money special interests.

Description

Common Cause is a nonpartisan nonprofit advocacy organization founded in 1970 by John Gardner as a vehicle for citizens to make their voices heard in the political process and to hold their elected leaders accountable to the public interest. Gardner announced the formation of Common Cause in newspaper ads asking Americans to join the organization. Within six months, more than 100,000 people responded. Now with nearly 300,000 members and supporters and 38 state organizations, Common Cause remains committed to honest, open and accountable government, as well as encouraging citizen participation in democracy.
