That means if you can give just $4 a month, Democracy Now! gets $12 today.  Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, start your monthly contribution today. Thanks so much. -Amy Goodman

Lost in all the noise of the campaign finance scandals in Washington are the efforts of hundreds of grassroots organizations nationwide that are fighting for real campaign reform at a local level. Whether running programs designed to educate people about the role of money in politics, or organizing local initiative around limiting campaign contributions, grassroots groups are increasingly trying to expose and reduce the influence of private money and special interests on campaigns in their towns, cities and states.

Over the next few days, we’re going to go around the country to hear what grassroots groups are doing to limit the power of money in politics.
