The ERC was formed to try and obtain unity of action among election reform groups, especially in regard to campaign finance reform.  

As discussed in the attached white paper, the Big Money groups are organized in purpose. Their purpose is easy to organize around: They want more of the influence that Big Money buys in today's Citizens United era. In truth, however, they've been organizing for decades, and they're way ahead of us. Unless reformers can also organize, we're likely to spend our time at failed reform attempts, and feel frustration at our anemic progress.  

The paper (see buttons below to download) discusses the situation in detail.  I hope you're able to read it and send us your comments and suggestions.
