Our Alliance

We believe deeply in the power of collaboration with other organizations and individuals working to strengthen Congress. There are many people, organizations, scholars, advocates and former members of Congress and staff committed to making the legislative branch more effective. The Alliance for Congress is dedicated to helping ensure their efforts have impact.  

By fostering connections, sharing resources and highlighting the good work underway, we will bolster ongoing efforts to improve Congress, resulting in greater impact than any one person or organization would have acting alone.
