IT'S TIME TO FIX THE EQUATION.

Our country is on a dangerous trajectory. Our two major political parties are dominated by their most vocal and extreme members, leaving little room for compromise. That’s why we’ve just had the most unproductive Congress in our lifetime. Our nation’s vast challenges are left unsolved. That’s not right.

Most American voters are not that extreme. We've been left behind as our traditional parties moved farther right and left. We do not want to live in an era of partisan extremism and gridlock. The sane, pragmatic majority in America must wrestle the steering wheel of the country away from the extremists on either side.

 

THE PLAN IS SIMPLE.

The Centrist Project is a rapidly growing national force of citizens working to bring real change to real problems. We take the best ideas from both parties and ditch the rest. And, we have a tangible strategy for real change.

It begins by electing five independent, centrist Senators not beholden to the broken parties who, like you, believe fiscal responsibility, economic opportunity, social tolerance and environmental stewardship should come first.

The five who will hold the swing votes on every issue facing the Senate, so neither major party will have the majority.

The five who will work for you, not the parties, pushing Congress to work faster and smarter.

America Deserves Better: My Journey in Political Reform

The Centrist Project's new Executive Director, Nick Troiano, reflects on his decade-long journey to fix politics. You can reach Nick at nick@centristproject.org.

On Election Day in 2006, I stood outside of my polling place in Milford, PA and asked voters to sign a petition that read: 

“To Congress: As We the People vote today, we are asking you to do your part and end the blame-game politics of Washington. Partisan bickering cannot solve the crucial issues we face. America deserves better."

I wound up collecting over 450 signatures despite the rain that day. Although I wasn’t yet old enough to vote, I felt like I was able to make a difference. Political reform became my calling, and I went to Washington to both study politics and intern for the organization that spearheaded the petition project.  

Statement from The Centrist Project

Statement by Pamela Peak, Executive Director:

“In repudiating the media and political establishments throughout the 2016 election cycle, Americans across the spectrum have sent a very loud message that politics as usual must fundamentally change. 

“While we remain deeply troubled by elements of Donald Trump’s campaign, we congratulate the President-Elect on his victory and wish him well as he prepares to lead the United States of America. We sincerely hope Mr. Trump, together with the new leadership of the U.S. Senate, follows through on his election night commitment to ‘work together and unify our great country.’

Centrist Election Results

We congratulate our endorsed candidates and our ballot measure partners on their excellent work this cycle. Fighting to improve democracy is difficult but important work, and we thank them for their leadership. Together, it’s time to unite and fix a political system that is in tremendous need of repair.
