Become an Member

Become an American Promise Citizen today to step up to the responsibilities and benefits of the movement to secure our constitutional rights and to direct our national destiny.

Your support goes directly to our national campaign to win: digital infrastructure of our member platform (AP Connect™), public portal tools (americanpromise.net), and paid state organizers. If you are unable to become an AP Citizen today, and would like to support our work, please donate as you are able.

AP Citizens contribute between $5/month ($60/year) and $100/month ($1200/year). At American Promise there are no “super citizens” who pay more to get more. We use the kind of small-donor model we want to see in our democracy - including a maximum contribution.

Here are some of the ways that AP Citizens can make an impact:

WE STAY INFORMED

With up-to-date press and information about the movement for effective citizenship

Via On the Move™ digest for busy citizens

WE WORK TOGETHER

On AP Connect™, our AP Citizen platform for local and national collaboration

Collaborate on a letter to the editor

WE HAVE A VOICE

In our lives and in our government

On regular telephone Town Halls, national webinars, and regional events

With action that holds elected officials accountable as we convey our beliefs

At National Citizen Leadership Conferences and all the conference materials

Renew AP Citizenship

If you are a current AP Citizen ready to renew, Thank you!

    Michigan is slated to have one of the most expensive election years coming up in 2018. This is the new normal in the post Citizens United world, but with your help we can end the domination of big money in our elections with a nationwide movement for political equality. 

    Joining Ben Gubits, Associate Director of American Promise, will be Craig Mauger from The Michigan Campaign Finance Network (MCFN) and Judy Karandjeff from the Michigan League of Women Voters.  MCFN is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that seeks to shine the brightest light possible on the role of money in Michigan politics. The organization's website is www.mcfn.orgAlso co-sponsoring this event is Take Back Our Republic a conservative group geared towards getting money out of politics and restoring individual liberties to the political system. Their website is takeback.org.

    The fight to take back our democracy will not be an easy one, but we are well on our way to make sure our government knows that the people -- not money - govern the United States!  It is time to stop the near 20 million dollars being spent on Michigan's elections, and reclaim our Democracy!
