Welcome to the Citizen Uprising in Massachusetts!
The Bay State has been a leader in calling for a 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics, passing S772 in the state legislature and over 200 local resolutions. That's just the beginning.
The Citizen Uprising here will build on all of that great work with a statewide ballot initiative to give voice to all Massachusetts citizens, and a big push for the We the People Act in this legislative session. We are in the process of drafting our ballot language and building the coalition to help get it on the ballot and passed. Our allies at We the People Massachusetts are spearheading the We the People Act, which would elevate the call from the state legislature into an application for an Article V convention. Needless to say, there's a lot to do, and we need you!
Whether you are new to grassroots action or a seasoned community organizer, these campaigns will need local organizers, signature collectors, citizen lobbyists, team leaders, greeters, data entry specialists, sign holders, and more…
Our job is to translate the cross-partisan support of the voters and state legislators into votes and sponsorship of the 28th Amendment in Congress. 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.
