What is the Campaign Legal Center?

Campaign Legal Center (CLC) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. CLC is adamantly nonpartisan, holding candidates and government officials accountable regardless of political affiliation. Their work includes serving as a watchdog group on ethics and campaign finance issues and participating in legal proceedings across the country to defend the right to vote.

Why do we think this organization is important?

Campaign Legal Center (CLC) shines light on the lack of transparency in online political advertising. Opaque and outdated transparency laws make it easy for dark money campaigns to influence elections and political debates online. CLC develops and pushes for common sense solutions that improve transparency of online ads at the state and federal level.
