Our Mission & What We Do

Mission Statement

Founded in 1999, NCVCE seeks to improve the vitality of democracy in North Carolina by enacting a voluntary public financing program for state-level candidates who earn the public's trust. A Voter-Owned, Clean Elections program would encourage candidates to reject all special-interest donations and rely solely on voters for their support.

What We Do

NCVCE coordinates lobbying efforts and advocacy reforms for its allies and affiliates. We provide groups with speakers, research and literature on money in politics. We also coordinate leadership trainings and other programs with coalition partners that highlight how private money impacts politics.
