About Us

We want Clean Elections

We are a group of Cantabrigians advocating for a clean elections program at the municipal level. Some of us have lived in Cambridge our whole lives; others are new to the city. Some of us have been organizing policy movements for years, and some of us are brand new to civic advocacy. Regardless, we are all concerned about the role of special interests in elections. We all believe that campaign finance reform is important. And we think everyone in Cambridge should join the movement!
