The National Citizen Leadership Conference
June 22nd‐June 25th, 2018
On June 22nd through the 25th, we'll gather in our nation's capital to discuss our common goal of winning The 28th Amendment. We hope you will join us to celebrate the progress we have made and the lessons we've learned along the way.
The National Citizen Leader Conference will provide an excellent opportunity to meet others working on our common cause, as well as:
- Discuss strategy, unity and the way forward to reclaiming our democracy
- Celebrate our political, demographic and experiential similarities and differences
- Generate enthusiasm for work that still needs to be done, while listening to and learning from a variety of distinguished speakers
American Promise is pleased to announce we will be holding our first congressional lobby day June 25th.
This optional lobby day will provide a unique opportunity to make our voices heard to our nation's leaders. The diverse group of citizen leaders who attend the lobby day will demonstrate the non-partisan will for a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Back by popular demand, the sensational play 'Go, Granny D!' will be performed again at the 2018 NCLC. Off-Broadway actress Barbara Bates Smith and musician Jeff Sebens highlight the story of Doris "Granny D" Haddock who, at age 90, walked 3200-miles across the United States to raise support for campaign finance reform. Haddock's determination inspired Americans everywhere and lead the way to the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002.
The 28th Amendment, created by the people and not large donors, is a historic goal that requires many communities to work together to overcome the constitutional crisis we face. The National Citizen Leadership Conference is a celebration of that cause, the work that we have done, and the work that we intend to do. We hope you can join us, so please save the date!
