Money is corrupting our elections. We have a solution.

As our elections become increasingly flooded with special interest money, Americans have lost hope in our democracy.

CounterPAC has a plan to restore it.

How it works

  1. 1

    Call for Reform CounterPAC picks races where money is playing a particularly corruptive role, and we challenge the candidates to take a reform pledge that would bring greater accountability to their campaign practices.

  2. 2

    Incentivize Action We begin each race as a completely neutral entity, incentivizing candidates to take our reform pledges through our commitment to supporting those who do and holding those who fail to act accountable.

  3. 3

    Hold Candidates Accountable When we succeed in brokering mutual pledge agreements between candidates, we continue to monitor the race to ensure that both candidates are following the rules and any violations are met with appropriate accountability.
