Mission Statement

We are dedicated to clean and open government and a full democracy, where everyone has an equal voice.

Who We Are and What We Do: We’re a nonprofit, nonpartisan watchdog that tracks and exposes money in politics in Wisconsin. We provide the premiere searchable database of campaign donations in the state. We are the only group that systematically tracks election spending by outside groups. We post original stories on money and politics on our website, and work with the media to convey our information and educate the public. We advocate for transparency and for reforms that level the electoral playing field. We defend our civil rights and liberties. We offer a vision of a democracy with equal participation, racial equity, and economic justice.
