The tide is turning.
Don’t get me wrong: Every day, quite literally, the Trump administration is doing enormous damage to our country.
But we have uncovered, in jaw-dropping detail, this administration’s conflicts and corruption.
Even more important, we’ve been able to STOP them, again and again, from carrying out their plutocratic schemes.
- We blocked bailouts for coal and nuclear plants.
- We stopped Citizens United 2.0 — a plan to enable churches to funnel hundreds of millions in dark money into our elections.
- We derailed the administration’s efforts to protect predatory for-profit colleges.
- We forced White House agencies to publish their visitor logs — the list of lobbyists visiting to demand favors from President Donald Trump.
- We saved a teen pregnancy prevention program.
- We filed requests for investigations into Trump confidante Corey Lewandowski and Trump’s regulatory adviser Carl Icahn — helping prompt both to resign.
- And much, much more.
But here’s what’s even more exciting: We are on the cusp of a major reform moment in American politics.
In poll after poll, Americans now rate corruption as their single top policy concern.
We have a chance, right now, to organize that anger, and leverage that political demand into the concerted pressure to win real change.
The list of things we need to do to reduce the devastation wreaked by the Trump administration is endless.
And, at the same time, we must invest major resources, right now, to pave the way to win transformational change once Trump no longer is in the picture.
You won’t get a bigger bang for your advocacy buck than you do with Public Citizen.
But we do need some of those bucks to power our frugal operation.
And with Public Citizen’s fiscal year ending at midnight this Sunday, September 30, I urgently need your help.
Several longtime benefactors will match every online contribution dollar-for-dollar — up to $100,000 — as long as your donation comes through by Sunday.
Thank you for anything you can chip in.
President, Public Citizen
