California can strike a blow against Citizens United by passing the California DISCLOSE Act, a bill that would shine a bright light on the shadowy interests who depend on secrecy to influence elections.

The push to shed light on secret money in California elections is ramping up again. And as a committed activist for this crucial reform, your voice is needed right now.

The California legislature came tantalizingly close to passing the California DISCLOSE Act last year when you stepped up to get big money out of California politics. The bill has been reintroduced in the State Senate this year, and its first committee hearings are coming up very soon.

For this reform to advance and become law in 2013, we need as many Californians as possible coming together to demand transparency.

You've already been one of the biggest supporters of removing corporate money from California politics. We need your help again.

Sign the petition telling your senator to support the California DISCLOSE Act today, and end secret money in California politics.

Under the California DISCLOSE Act (Senate Bill 52), the top three donors to any group running political ads would have to display their logos clearly every time their ads air -- meaning if Chevron or Philip Morris bankrolls a misleading spot, SB 52 would unmistakably expose their scheme.

As a Californian, you have an amazing opportunity to halt secret money in state elections and start turning the tide on the Supreme Court's disastrous Citizens United decision.

The time is now for transparent democracy. But giant corporate interests will try to kill disclosure reforms. We need to be stronger to fight back.

Sign the petition urging state senators to support the California DISCLOSE Act today.

Thank you for uniting as a progressive,
