  • 28th Amendment Reception at Unrig

    NoLa.jpg

    Fed up with Big Money dominating our elections and government? 

    Join fellow citizen leaders from across the nation to celebrate and discuss the growing movement for a Constitutional Amendment to end the era of big money and special interests corrupting our democracy. 

    American Promise will be hosting a reception for all groups and all individuals who want to learn about and are working for a Constitutional Amendment that will reverse disastrous Supreme Court decisions such as Citizens United, and restore political equality for all Americans.  

    The reception will be held at the Howlin’ Wolf on Friday, February 2nd at 6:45 PM.  The ‘Unrig Friday Night Welcome Party’  at the Howlin’ Wolf will follow.  

    Light fare and drinks will be provided.  This is a great opportunity to meet and network with fellow citizens across the country working for this historic reform.  

    Please join us and share with your supporters that are attending the Unrig the System Summit.  

    RSVP Below!

    See you in New Orleans!

  • New York, NY - Money Out of Politics Group Launch!

    CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE!

    Over 150 years ago, Abraham Lincoln extolled our American democracy as a government as “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

    If you still cherish that vision, and think that the Citizens United decision went too far, if you think that the voice of individual voters in our politics and elections has become overshadowed by big, multi-layered, corporate special interests, there’s something “we the people” can do.

    Join us on February 15, 2018 from 7pm to 9pm for a free workshop to learn about how to make this issue an important part of the 2018 mid-term elections to make sure our elected officials know that people - not money, not corporations, not super PACs - govern the United States.  

    This 2-hour training session, hosted by Citizen Empowerment Coordinator Azor Cole, will discuss:

    • The impact of the Supreme Court’s decision in the Citizens United case
    • The proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution
    • Why a 28th Amendment is needed now more than ever
    • The 19 states that have already voiced their support for a 28th Amendment
    • How you can get more involved
