RepresentUs NY is the NYC Chapter of RepresentUs, the nation’s largest grassroots, nonpartisan anti-corruption organization.
For too long, political power has been concentrated in the hands of a few wealthy individuals and special interests. We fight back by passing tough anti-corruption laws in cities and states across America.
Our all-volunteer chapter has been a key part of some of the biggest democracy reforms in New York City politics, including:
- Int. 732-B, which allows candidates for office in NYC to receive up to 89% of their campaign funds from the city. By making calls and showing support, with helped persuade more than half of the City Council to sponsor the bill.
- Question 1 of 2018, which raised the amount of public funds candidates can receive during campaigns. We helped get out the vote and drum up support. The initiative passed with 80% of the vote.
- Question 1 of 2019, which will be on the ballot. If the initiative passes, ranked choice voting will be used in all primary and special elections in NYC from 2021.
And there’s more to come! Please sign up for our mailing list to receive updates on upcoming meetings and opportunities.
