The FACT Coalition is a non-partisan alliance of 100-plus state, national, and international organizations combating the harmful impacts of corrupt financial practices and promoting a fair and transparent global tax system. (The FACT Coalition is a fiscally sponsored project of the Fund for Constitutional Government.)
