  • MapLight: Revealing money's influence on politics

    MapLight seeks to shine a light on our money-dominated political system so citizens can be more informed about the potential financial influences that affect their representatives’ votes.

    Why? We believe that democracy works best when it is the public’s interests that are at the forefront of their representatives’ minds when voting on policies – not the interests of a select few whose resources may eclipse the interests of many.
