CITIZENS UNION brings New Yorkers together to strengthen our democracy and improve our City. The health of our democracy and the effectiveness of our government it produces have a direct bearing on the quality of life for New Yorkers. Nonpartisan and independent, our goal is to build a political system that is fair and open to all, that values each voice, and that engages every voter. As New York’s democratic reform organization, we inform, empower and organize citizens to strengthen the integrity of our political institution. We fight against corruption; work to reform our voting and electoral systems; and press for city and state governments that are transparent, accountable and effective. We welcome everyone, of any political or professional background, who wants to work with other New Yorkers to create a cleaner, healthier democracy for our City and State.
