Welcome to the Citizen Uprising in Maine!
In 2013 the state legislature passed [SP 548], adding Maine to the growing list of states calling for the 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics. That's a great start, but it's only the beginning.
Our citizen leaders, volunteers, and allies are gearing up for a statewide ballot initiative so that we can take this issue to the people and continue to grow the uprising. From there, we can translate the cross-partisan support of the voters into cross-partisan support in D.C.
American Promise is working to help connect people who want to get involved and help out. Take the Pledge to call for a 28th Amendment so we can keep you up to date with what's going on in the Uprising.
In the meantime, you can get started with easy to use tools. Take them out for a spin.
