  • New Hampshire - HB 504 Public Hearing!

    We have a major opportunity to fight back against the Big Money interests working so hard to buy our democracy. HB 504, a bill calling for a constitutional amendment to fix pay-to-play politics and end partisan gerrymandering, is moving in the New Hampshire legislature and it's all hands on deck to seize this historic moment!

    We need you to pack the public hearing to show our elected officials that We The People support this needed reform. 

    This is citizenship in action. This is how we’ll end corruption once and for all.

  • Common Cause Colorado 2019 Policy Summit with Ben Gubits

    Are you an attorney with a passion for voting rights? An activist dying to see Citizens United overturned? A student breaking into the world of civic engagement - or a parent who wants to create a more fair and equitable community for your kids?

    Take a deep dive into the pro-democracy reforms taking place across Colorado at our 2019 Policy Summit: Saturday, February 9 from 9 AM – 5 PM in Denver.

    The 2018 Election demonstrated how strongly Coloradans feel about passing meaningful democracy reform. Coloradans voted overwhelmingly to end gerrymandering through a new redistricting process; rejected a ballot initiative to dramatically increase contribution limits in state elections; and passed an innovative public financing initiative in the state’s largest city.

    American Promise Director of Political Strategy, Ben Gubits, will be speaking in the afternoon at the summit. If you are interested in attending please register with Common Cause via this link.

  • Democracy is Brewing - Traverse City, MI American Promise Association Launch

    Tired of big donors and special interests calling the shots?  

    Join us to help get money out of politics! 

     

    Whether your issue is the opioid crisis, affordable healthcare, gun safety, education, or income inequality, in order to win meaningful and lasting reform, we must fix our constitution first so our government serves people, not lobbyists and campaign donors. 

    You're invited to the Traverse City, MI American Promise Association launch event for a free workshop that will give you the tools you need to stay engaged on this root cause issue. 

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

    This free training session, led by AP's State Campaigns Manager Azor Cole, will cover:

    - What the 28th Amendment does and how to talk about 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 big money on American politics. Encouragingly, Americans are pushing back on this corruption and are ready to win the 28th Amendment together! Please join this cross-partisan effort to reclaim our democracy and RSVP now!

  • Democracy is Brewing - Auburn, ME

    Tired of big donors and special interests calling the shots?  

    Join us to help get money out of politics! 

     

    Midterms are over but our civic duty is not. Maine just had one of the most expensive midterms elections in history. This is the new normal in the post Citizens United world, but with your help we can end the domination of big money in our elections with a nationwide movement for political equality. 

    Speaking will be Azor Cole, American Promise State Campaigns Manager. You'll join members of the Portland, ME American Promise Association, who are already engaged civically around the 28th Amendment.

    You'll meet an active group of citizen leaders preparing to meet with legislators, engage with the media, and present to the public, all about the problem of money in politics and, more importantly, about the solution of a 28th Amendment to reverse a series of Supreme Court decisioned which likened money to speech. 

    The fight to win a working democracy will not be an easy one, but we are well on our way to make sure our government knows that people, not money, govern the United States!
