We have it in our power to begin the world over again.
— Thomas Paine—

The initiative process is the purest form of democracy in the United States. It gives We The People the power to write our own future, free from the corrupting influences of money and special interest groups. It allows us to enact laws which promote the “General Welfare” of the people instead of for the benefit of corporate profits. Initiatives provide us a way to bypass government institutions which are unable or unwilling to provide us with the necessary leadership to move our society forward toward a more just and sustainable future.
