The Center for Responsive Politics is the nation's premier research group tracking money in US politics and its effect on elections and public policy. Nonpartisan, independent, and nonprofit, the organization aims to create a more educated voter, an involved citizenry, and a more transparent and responsive government. In short, the center's mission is to inform citizens about how money in politics affects their lives, empower voters and activists by providing unbiased information, and advocate for a transparent and responsive government.
The center pursues its mission largely through its award-winning website, OpenSecrets.org, which is the most comprehensive resource for federal campaign contributions, lobbying data, and analysis available anywhere. For other organizations and news media, the center's exclusive data powers their online features tracking money in politics—counting cash to make change.
