Our Mission

Holding the powerful accountable.

Campaign for Accountability is a 501(c)(3) that uses research, litigation and aggressive communications to expose misconduct and malfeasance in public life. Millions of Americans’ lives are negatively impacted by decisions made behind the doors of corporate boardrooms, government offices, and shadowy nonprofit groups.

Advocacy groups do not always have the capacity or will to take on the opposition directly. We will hold those who act at the expense of the public good accountable for their actions.
