Our Commitment to Nonpartisanship
The Campaign Legal Center (CLC) is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization working to improve our democracy and protect the fundamental right of all Americans to participate in the political process. We seek to protect and strengthen the democratic process across all levels of government.
What does this mean?
In order to uphold our mission, CLC takes action regardless of the party in power or the political affiliation of the candidate or government official who has violated the law.
We carry out our watchdog function and actively engage in shaping the narrative in the media through public statements and press appearances, educating the public and putting pressure on lawmakers to protect and expand our democracy.
- Candidates for office and public officials, regardless of party affiliation, who violate campaign finance laws and regulations, should be held accountable.
- Public officials, regardless of party affiliation, who violate ethics laws and regulations, should be held accountable.
- Candidates for office and public officials who threaten the health of our democracy deserve to be challenged in court and called out in the media.
Through this principled approach — without consideration of party politics — CLC carries out our watchdog function and holds government accountable to protect and expand our democracy.
