Rescue California Foundation
Rescue California Foundation is a California non-profit founded in 2011 by venture-capitalist John Cox. For the last three years, we've been working towards a single purpose: putting true political power back in the hands of the people. Sacramento is being held captive by the super-rich special interest groups that fund million-dollar campaigns. Our solution? Make campaigns so inexpensive that special interests become irrelevant.To this end, we've written the Neighborhood Legislature Act, an initiative that we hope to see on the 2016 California ballot.
The Neighborhood Legislature Act shrinks the size of existing electoral districts to the size of neighborhoods. Elected representatives will be intimately involved in the communities that elect them, and legislators will be set free from their obligations to special interest groups. You’ll know your representative’s name, they’ll know yours, and the power to return the Golden State to its former glory will be put back where it belongs: in the hands of its people.
The Neighborhood Legislature is a revolution of the people, by the people and for the people. Together, we can repair our compromised democracy and restore political equality to California.
