End Corruption. Defend our Republic and Fix our Broken Elections

About RepresentUs
RepresentUs brings together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to pass powerful state and local laws that fix our broken elections and stop political bribery. Our strategy is central to ending political corruption, extremism, and gridlock.

We are the nation’s leading right-left anti-corruption organization with a mission to stop political bribery, end secret money, and fix our broken elections. Every day we are hard at work to secure crucial victories that are defending our Republic and fixing America’s corrupt political system.

RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers. We’re not a startup, but we’ve got startup DNA: we’re nimble, constantly learning and iterating, and we push ourselves to push the envelope—to ignore “industry standards” and set a new standard.

Democracy is for all, and at RepresentUs, so is our workplace. That’s why we’re an Equal Opportunity Employer. We are committed to evolving our staff and board to reflect the full diversity of America and the communities we aim to serve. As we seek the best of the best to join our ranks, we welcome applications from all walks of life (including but not limited to BIPOC/people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates) because we know that our democracy-building work has greater impact when we center diverse backgrounds, perspectives and ideologies. Once on the team, we encourage our teammates to bring their whole selves to work. We’re continually working to increase our cultural awareness, strengthen our approach to equity, and foster a climate of inclusion in all that we do. We invite you to belong with us! Read our statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion here. RepresentUs has established the following “foundational agreements.”  They are agreements that all staff—and prospective staff—must consider and consent to, in order to work here. Come win with us!
