The Reform Party of the United States is a grassroots organization founded in 1995 as a centrist alternative to the Democratic and Republican Parties. The party was founded on principles for governing that included holding elected official accountable, maintaining a balanced budget, stopping the passage of free trade agreements, and improving government transparency.
The party’s mission is to force political change in America. To do so the party runs candidates for a variety of offices across the nation. It also works with other groups to lobby the government, and acts as a watchdog to warn voters about troublesome legislation.
The Reform Party is the most successful minor party of the last fifty years. In 1998 a state governor was elected on the Reform Party ballot line. In addition, a number of Reform Party members have been elected to local offices.
The party is growing. State and local affiliates are constantly recruiting moderate activists to hold leadership positions and run for office. If you would like to help the Reform Party, it is possible to contact a party representative by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
