Corporations and special interests are trying to buy our elections with secret donations.
The DISCLOSE Act would have shed some light on the dark money in American elections. Which corporations are paying for attack ads? We won't find out; Republicans blocked the bill earlier this week. While Republicans demand you to have a specific ID to vote, they don’t want to reveal who their sponsors are.
Help us continue the fight for fair elections. Sign the petition below and make a contribution today to help our organizers educate communities. We won’t achieve real campaign finance reform without the people demanding it!

Why do we support the DISCLOSE Act?
The DISCLOSE Act would expose who is financing SuperPACs, which have quickly surpassed traditional Political Action Committees (PAC) in amassing big bucks. Currently, the loophole that Citizens United opened is being exploited by SuperPACs that are able to spend an unlimited amount without having to disclose the names of their donors during the election.
The DISCLOSE Act would require a SuperPAC to report to the Federal Election Commission within 24 hours on any donor who gives more than $10,000 . It would also require companies that pay for political ads to identify their sponsorship, as candidates are required to do now. This prevents SuperPACs from funneling unlimited amounts of shadow money into campaigns. While Republicans claim disclosure to be an “un-American” attack on their First Amendment rights, ADA believes this bill must be passed to save the integrity of our election system. Plain and simple, corporations are not people and the DISCLOSE Act will help the American people know who is blanketing the airwaves with political attack ads.
