Organization Profile
Type: Nonpartisan organization
Website:Official website
The Committee of Seventy is a nonpartisan group. The organization was initially founded in the late 1800s.[1]


The mission statement of the association is:[2]

The Committee of Seventy fights for clean and effective government, fair elections and a better informed citizenry in Philadelphia and the region.

The Committee of Seventy has been called a "government watchdog," "the elections people" and a "think tank." In fact, we are all of these and much more.

Seventy fights for more effective and efficient government, fair elections and an honest political culture. We try to raise public awareness about complex issues in commonsense language that non-experts can relate to.

We are willing to stand alone on tough issues or collaborate with likeminded organizations, make noise to call attention to reform opportunities or work quietly behind-the-scenes. Seventy uses its voice and influence to help provoke debate and affect real change.

Our goal is not just good government for its own sake, but fundamental change that will lead to our region's growth. [3]
