about CREW

When personal profits are prioritized over ethics, and secret money damages our institutions, CREW fights abuses of power and violations of the law. We must hold our leaders to a higher standard than simply walking the line between legality and criminality. Since our founding in 2003, we have worked to hold leaders of both parties accountable for unethical conduct. By demanding transparency and ethics from our leaders, we can defend our democracy and prevent the current crisis from becoming the new normal.
