  • Big Money v. The People: Alaska Campaign Finance Speaking Tour - University of Alaska Fairbanks

    AP Logo

    Jeff Clements, President of American Promise, will be on a two week speaking tour across Alaska to build support for a national movement to win an amendment to the US Constitution to address out-of-control spending in US elections and secure the equal rights of Americans to effective representation and participation in self-government. Invited by local citizens in Alaska who are fighting to limit outside money in local land state elections, Jeff will talk about the dramatic growth in SuperPAC spending, the increasing role of concentrated wealth in elections and government, and what we can do to ensure that all the American people are equal citizens in our republic.

    On the 25th of March, Jeff will be speaking as part of the Free Speech lecture series hosted by the University of Alaska Fairbanks Political Science Department. The event is open to the public.

  • Get Money Out - North Texas American Promise Association Launch!

    Whether your issue is the opioid crisis, the $21 trillion national debt, a healthy economy where businesses have an equal chance to compete, the rights of states to make their own election laws, or affordable healthcare, in order to win meaningful lasting reform, we must fix our constitution first so our government serves people, not lobbyists and campaign donors. 

    Join North Texas American Promise Organizer Ann Drumm, American Promise State Manager Azor Cole, and citizen leaders in your area 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 corporations, not unions, not super PACs - govern the citizens of these United States.  

    This free training session 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 (we'll form groups based on our location and create action plans!)

    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!
