The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is a homegrown network of citizens fighting government corruption and working for fair elections, judicial integrity, media democracy, and open and transparent government. The Democracy Campaign pursues these objectives through research, citizen education, community outreach, coalition building and direct advocacy.
WDC was founded in 1995 as a nonpartisan, independent coalition of individuals and groups responding to the growing dominance of special interest money in the campaigns of state lawmakers.
"The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is one of this state's most important watchdogs for open and honest government. It analyzes policy, exposes conflicts of interest and follows the money. Most politicians find such work irritating. But that's because WDC puts citizens, and citizen education and access, above political interests."
