Raise Voices Not Dollars™: An Alternative
Raise Voices Not Dollars Super PAC: A Non-partisan advocate for reform
Inspired by Watergate, RVND aims to increase disclosure in American campaigns
Inspired by the 1972 Nixon fundraising committee "CREEP" and headquartered in the Watergate Complex, the CREEP Super PAC seeks to raise voices not dollars. The Watergate Scandal and the 1974 campaign finance reform are the foundation for campaign finance laws we have today. Over 40 years later, and with court rulings like Citizens United and Speechnow.org, unlimited campaign funds can be donated indirectly to super PACs. CREEP Super PAC seeks to highlight the need for disclosure in elections and unite activists.
A Novel Approach to Campaign Finance
Emphasize participation over politics, people over partisanship, principles over profiteering.
Raise Voices Not Dollars will encourage mega donors and the average citizen to work together, increasing participation, while balancing the well-funded efforts of the political elite.
