Clean money initiative: work to do

This November the California Nurses Clean Money Elections Act will clean up politics and throw the lobbyists from the state house. Clean Money Elections allows candidates to run for office — and win! — without raising money from deep pocket donors. It’s already working well in Arizona, Maine, and Connecticut, with increases in voter participation and minority representation and a decrease in the influence of lobbyists and corporations. We need your help to collect enough signatures to place our initiative on the November ballot!

"People who have more money should be free to buy more cars, more homes, more vacations, and more gizmos than the rest of us. They should not be able to buy more democracy."
- Bill Moyers
