Welcome to the Citizen Uprising in New York!
Citizen leaders and our allies at New York for Democracy were successful two years ago year in getting a majority of the state legislature to sign on to a letter, making New York the 18th state to call for a 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics.
New Yorkers are keeping the pressure on, and there is an active American Promise Association, with members in both Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Introduce yourself to the group at APA.Brooklyn@gmail.com!
Now it's time to turn that support at the state level into votes in Congress. We'll be working to translate the cross-partisan support of the citizens of New York into New York Congressional Delegation cross-partisan sponsorship for the 28th Amendment. We'll also be working to get (and keep!) New York ready to ratify when that time comes.
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.

One by one, citizens will put us on the map with all the other states working for the 28th Amendment that says PEOPLE - NOT MONEY - GOVERN THE UNITED STATES.
We CAN make the difference.
