Restore Democracy Pledge Cards

Bernie Sanders Pledge Card

Democracy Matters “Restore Democracy” Pledge Card signed by Senator Bernie Sanders

While our students are busy creating campus chapters and forming coalitions with community members for campaign finance reform, they are also asking Presidential candidates if they will sign the Democracy Matters “Restore Democracy Pledge”. The pledge reads: “I support restoring democracy by publicly financing elections and taking big money out of politics.” These pledges serve as promises to the American public that if elected, meaningful campaign finance reform—which includes public financing of elections—will be a central tenant of the administration’s policy objectives. Thus far, the only candidate to have agreed to the pledge is Senator Bernie Sanders, who signed the card in October 2014 (well before he announced his candidacy for President).

Any one is welcome to take the pledge, whether as a candidate or ordinary citizen. We will soon have it up online so for easy access and dissemination.
