Support DC Fair Elections!

June 29: Save the Date!

In March 2017, DC councilmembers introduced a bill to establish a small-donor empowerment program in DC. Candidates who agree to reject money from wealthy donors and special interests will receive funds matching what they've raised through small contributions.

"More than 60% of campaign contributions in recent cycles come from either non-District residents or corporations, while only 5% of campaign contributions come from D.C. residents giving $100 or less. D.C.’s donor class is older, whiter, wealthier, and more male than our population as a whole. More than 62% of Council and Mayoral donors are white, compared to 37% of D.C.’s population."



Take Action:

Sign this petition to support the Fair Elections Bill.

Attend June 29th hearing at the Wilson Building. 

Public financing for elections will give DC residents the chance to have a powerful voice in the community. On Thursday, June 29 at 9:00 AM we're looking to pack the DC Council hearing with fair elections supporters.

D.C. Fair Elections is looking for local individuals to testify. If you have a member who would be interested in speaking, please email David Sanchez (dsanchez@democracyinitiative.org).
