Right to repair

We should be able to fix our stuff when it breaks.

We need easy access to the information, tools, resources and third party repair shops it takes to fix our cell phones, appliances, electronics and other equipment. That means working together to get the companies who make our stuff, to give us the right to repair our stuff. When they do, it will be better for the planet, better for our budgets, and things will work the way they are supposed to.

Thank you for your hard work, I'm a monthly donor and every bit of it matters. How you handle my money is exactly why I support you. Elizabeth Stackel, member
Consumers statewide and nationwide deserve to have quality, long-lasting products, but when those products don’t last or get damaged, it can be extremely expensive and inconvenient to replace them. Scott Bendett, New York Assemblyman
Repair scores provide a simple, reliable way to know what we are paying for before we buy expensive electronics. Julie von Haefen, North Carolina Representative
I support right to repair scores because they empower consumers with crucial information on the repairability of products before purchase, enhancing market transparency and reducing electronic waste. As the FTC's 'Nixing the Fix' report highlights, the lack of accessible repair information perpetuates a market imbalance, disadvantaging consumers. Implementing a national voluntary repair score, akin to EnergyGuide labels, will guide consumers towards more sustainable and economical choices, while also promoting local business opportunities and sustainable product designs. Janice Marchman, Colorado Senator
I’m pleased to encourage the FTC to continue to expand the information consumers have about the reliability and repairability of the electronic products they buy which empowers them to make more knowledgeable decisions, both financially and for the environment. Marian Matthews, New Mexico Representative
