We are Team Democracy, a group of design, technology, and marketing professionals who see big money in politics as a fatal system bug in our democracy.
Deep-pocketed special interest groups dominate our political process. Politicians must raise ever larger piles of cash to run for office and spend most of their time in office fundraising. The result is that the needs of ordinary citizens are ignored.
We are mobilizing our fellow creatives and techies to end the system of pay-to-play politics that is corrupting our democracy. We're working with organizations like the California Clean Money Campaign, the NH Rebellion, and the Mayday Super PAC with Lawrence Lessig. We're also working on new ideas. We organize hackathons, meetups, and weekly working sessions to help get big money out of politics.
