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 part of numerous major anti-corruption victories in New York City and State, including:
- Our #FixNYDemocracy campaign got nearly 50 candidates for the New York State legislature to pledge to enact certain pro-democracy reforms upon winning office.
- Passage of 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, we helped persuade more than half of the City Council to sponsor and eventually pass 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 brought ranked choice voting to all primary and special elections in NYC.
