Help us Change Janesville
Citizen Association for Rights and Dignity Taking back our property, our neighborhood, our community, our country!” C.A.R.D. is a grass roots movement, established in 2003, to clean up government, starting at the local level in our own back yards. To put democracy back into the democratic process, to return our country back to the people, to get our government back in line, to return power to the people, to protect our citizens from bureaucratic abuse of authority. C.A.R.D. does this through organizing citizens, training citizens of our rights, gathering evidence, exposing corruption, litigating wrong doing, sharing information on law, statutes, forms, and procedures to represent oneself against government violations, monitoring government meetings and city employees, flyering important information to neighborhoods, exposing procedures and practices that violate citizen rights, seeking restitution to citizens for damages by government, implementing strategies to eradicate unethical government practices, endorsing citizen-friendly candidates, organizations, and referendums, collecting signatures on petitions, advertising for needed changes, creating policy to correct power imbalances.
