Your support helps us conduct research, analysis and reports, public-awareness campaigns, community organizing, and legislative outreach. Your donation will also help us to create a robust independent citizen-led oversight and advisory committee and correctional ombuds to ensure the ADCRR is meeting its statutory mandates. With your support, we can work towards a safer and more just correctional system for all Arizonans. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference and is greatly appreciated. So please, consider making a donation today and help us bring about real change to the ADCRR.

Statement Regarding 501(c)(3) Lobbying Compliance
Arizonans for Transparency and Accountability in Corrections (“ATAC”) is a grassroots, non-profit organization dedicated to the creation and implementation of a Citizen’s Oversight Committee and Independent Ombuds to monitor, investigate, and report on the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, donations to ATAC are tax-exempt, and ATAC complies with all 501(c)(3) rules and regulations. ATAC has made a 501(h) election that allows us to participate in lobbying activities to the extent permitted by Internal Revenue Service financial limits. ATAC tracks the amount it spends on lobbying, as well as the amount of staff time, as needed to ensure that it does not exceed federal thresholds.
ATAC does not attempt to influence nor participate in electoral politics, and we do not endorse candidates for public office. We are a non-partisan organization whose lobbying efforts are solely directed toward educating our members, the public, and policymakers and advocating for comprehensive legislation to create and implement the Citizen’s Oversight Committee and Independent Ombuds to monitor, investigate, and report on the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry. Our goal is to have paid employees dedicated to this effort, and we also support, encourage and include volunteers.
ATAC has never and will never jeopardize its exempt status by exceeding its federally-mandated threshold for “substantial” lobbying activities, either grassroots or direct. Within these limits, we will continue to fulfill our mission and be the voice for all Arizona families and taxpayers in partnership with like-minded organizations
