The American people need to know that your platforms come from your conscience and not from your biggest donors.

Republicans or Democrats, we can all agree that the role of the President is to represent the people. We're asking you to help fix our democracy by protecting the right to vote for all Americans, and fighting for commonsense measures to make sure that every voice is heard.

With primary season upon us, we have a huge opportunity. By making this a key election issue for 2016, we can take big strides toward getting money out of politics. One candidate, Bernie Sanders, has already signed onto the pledge. Who will be next?
