Our Mission

Holding the Powerful Accountable

Campaign for Accountability is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan, nonprofit watchdog organization that uses research, litigation, and aggressive communications to expose misconduct and malfeasance in public life.

Our Mission

Millions of Americans’ lives are negatively impacted by decisions made behind closed doors at corporations, government offices, and shadowy nonprofit groups.  CfA works on behalf of the public interest to expose corruption, negligence, and unethical behavior wherever it may occur. We investigate the actions of powerful interests at every level of society, ranging from the largest corporations to the smallest county governments. Our current priorities include federal accountability, state oversight, corporate responsibility, and consumer protection.


Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We are dedicated to creating an inclusive space for all our employees and extending this culture of inclusion into our work. At CfA, diversity, equity and inclusion are integral to our mission.

We believe that our workforce should reflect the vast diversity of our world, and that diverse voices should be elevated and intentionally integrated into our work. We embrace difference and diversity of identity, experience, and thought, and actively strive to further inclusive behaviors across our organization and our work. By promoting these values, we aim to create a positive work experience that encourages a sense of belonging.
