America's corrupt political system is a complex problem. The American Anti-Corruption Act is a comprehensive solution.

The American Anti-Corruption Act sets a standard for city, state and federal laws that break big money's grip on politics. It will:

  • Stop political bribery by making it illegal for lobbyists to lobby a politician and donate to their campaign. You can lobby, or you can donate, but you can't do both.
  • End secret money so Americans know who is buying political power.
  • Fix our broken elections so the people, not the political establishment, are the ones in control.

Together, we're building a nationwide movement to fix corruption.

In communities across America, RepresentUs members – conservatives, progressives and everyone in between – are working together to pass local Anti-Corruption Acts. Member-led RepresentUs chapters are leading the fight to protect our communities from the corruption that plagues Congress. In 2016, RepresentUs members passed the first statewide Anti-Corruption Act in South Dakota.

Thousands of RepresentUs members helped RepDay2015 launch the next wave of the movement. Now, we take to the states.

Every town, city, state, and county has a unique political makeup, so every Anti-Corruption Act is uniquely tailored to the needs of each community.

Local action, national political power.

Every municipal and state Anti-Corruption Act creates common-sense ethics, conflict-of-interest, transparency, and campaign finance laws. State Acts create the opportunity for federal candidates from that state to campaign on the anti-corruption platform – accountable to their constituents, not special interests.

Candidates who win election on this platform have a built-in incentive to champion Anti-Corruption laws in Washington, D.C. (because that's what got them elected). Every state we win gets us one crucial step closer to passing the American Anti-Corruption Act in the federal government.
