MapLight reveals money’s influence on politics. Founded in 2005, we are a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides timely, in-depth information about lawmakers, votes, interest groups, and more to expose the links between political money and legislative outcomes. Our groundbreaking transparency database makes influence connections that once required weeks of research to uncover available at the click of a mouse, giving citizens tools to hold government accountable.
