Become a leader in breaking the dominance of money in politics that corrupts our government not only for to pass the 28th Amendment but to make sure our elected officials know people - not money, not corporations, not super PACs - govern the United States.  

    This 3-hour training session will cover:

    • What the 28th Amendment does and how to promote it
    • How to develop the political will needed to ratify a 28th Amendment
    • How to speak effectively about the need for a 28th Amendment
    • Actions you can take
    • How to plan for additional learning

     It's hard to know what's true in the he said/she said swirl of our current news cycles. What is real and dangerous is the grip of global money in American politics. Americans are pushing back and are ready to win the 28th Amendment together! Join the Citizen Uprising and RSVP now!

  • Keeping the American Promise - Grand Rapids, MI

    American Promise is spearheading a 50-state Citizen Uprising with one goal: the 28th Amendment to the Constitution that sets reasonable limits on election spending and protects the rights for human beings over privileges for global corporations and special interests. The Uprising will be most intense in the lead up the 2018 elections, and citizens of the Michigan have an important role to play in ratification!

    As the Michigan Campaign Finance Network continues to shine the brightest light possible on the role of money in politics in the state, please join American Promise, The League of Women Voters Michigan, and the Michigan Campaign Finance Network in Grand Rapids to find out how you can help win the 28th Amendment and get big money out of politics.

    The fight to take back our democracy will not be an easy one, but with 18 states passing votes already and another 20 on their way, we are well on our way to 28th Amendment! It is time to stop the near 20 million dollars being spent on Michigan's elections, and make sure our government knows that the people -- not money - govern the United States!
