Campaign Legal Center (CLC) advances democracy through law, fighting for every American’s right to participate in the democratic process. CLC uses tactics such as litigation, policy advocacy, communications and partnerships to win victories that result in a more transparent, accountable and inclusive democracy. Our long-term goal is a government responsive to the people.
CLC’s commitment is to democracy, not to any political party or to any particular electoral result. We think about systemic impact when we choose which work to pursue, but we work at all levels of government to introduce innovative ideas that will drive significant change or set an important legal precedent. Our priority is engaging and driving action – whether in the courtroom, newsroom or statehouse.
CLC’s knowledge of election law matters is unmatched. Peer organizations, journalists and government officials rely on our analysis and legal skills. It is our expertise and non-partisanship, combined with the cases and issues we strategically choose, that ensures we make the largest impact possible.
We seek a future in which the American political process is accessible to all citizens, resulting in representative, responsive and accountable government.
The nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center advances democracy through law at the federal, state and local levels, fighting for every American’s rights to responsive government and a fair opportunity to participate in and affect the democratic process.
