Review for MapLight, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As corruption mounts, diminishing freedom and weakening our republic, it's incredibly important to keep people informed of how money influences legislation and politics in general. It's even more important, in these polarized times, to do it objectively, without political affiliation or agenda. I've passed MapLight's emails on to dozens of people, all of whom are shocked by what they read. Figuratively slapped out of their apathetic stupor, they now keep a critical eye on their elected representatives and how their actions affect society at large. MapLight does great work and I am so pleased to have found them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to find more funding in order to focus on individual states, in order to touch people a little closer to home. For example, I'd love to know how my own state legislators' voting records compare to their receipt of campaign contributions. Alas, MapLight lacks resources to drill down so far at this time.
