Organizational type –

Organizational vision -
A truly representative American democracy in which our elected leaders represent us effectively without the corrupting influence of conflicts of interest.
Organizational mission -
The Vermont Political Revolution Corporation is a non-profit (501(c)(3)), non-partisan, nationwide, constituent-led, grassroots organization and movement in which citizens and candidates work together to minimize conflicts of interest in public office via education, active learning, and proactive self-help.
Starting in Vermont and spreading across the nation, voters and candidates are educated about the adverse effects of special interests campaign contributions on America’s democracy and proactive self-help remedies. Voter active learning and commitment are reinforced by garnering 'voter pledges' to only vote for candidates who pledge to not seek or accept campaign contributions from special interests; likewise, candidate active learning and commitment are reinforced by garnering 'candidate pledges' to not seek or accept campaign contributions from special interests.
We aim for Vermont to catalyze similar educational and self-help political revolutions nationwide and to work collaboratively with other non-profit non-partisan organizations to eliminate or reduce the corrupting influence of special interests money across the American political spectrum.
We aim to induce a cultural paradigm shift in 21st century political thinking whereby voters insist on a ‘politician profession’ standard of conduct akin to other highly regarded professions. We believe this ‘personal integrity’ approach, in concert with legal efforts (increased disclosure, contribution limits, reversal of Citizens United (constitutional amendment)), is the best way to maximize effective in governance to solve our big problems.
