  • Get Money Out - Columbus, OH APA Launch

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

    You're invited to the Columbus, Ohio American Promise Association launch for a free workshop that will give you the tools you need to stay engaged on this issue through the 2018 election cycle and beyond. 

    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 United States.  

    This training session, led by Citizen Empowerment Coordinator 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 in American politics. Americans are pushing back and are ready to win the 28th Amendment together! Please join this cross-partisan effort to reclaim our democracy and RSVP now!
