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

  • Get Money Out - Columbus, OH APA Launch

    Whether your issue is climate change, the opioid crisis, affordable healthcare, gun safety, or income inequality, in order to win meaningful, lasting reform, we must fix our constitution first so our government serves people, not profits. 

    You're invited to the Columbus, Ohio American Promise Association launch for a free workshop that will give you the tools you need to stay engaged on this issue through the 2018 election cycle and beyond. 

    Become a grassroots leader in breaking the dominance of money in politics that corrupts our government, not only to pass the 28th Amendment, but to make sure our elected officials know people - not money, not corporations, not super PACs - govern the United States.  

    This training session, led by Citizen Empowerment Coordinator Azor Cole, will cover:

    - What the 28th Amendment does and how to talk about it

    - How to develop the political will needed to ratify a 28th Amendment

    - How to speak effectively about the need for a 28th Amendment

    - Actions you can take

    - How to plan for additional learning

    It's hard to know what's true in the he said/she said swirl of our current news cycles. What is real and dangerous is the grip of big money in American politics. Americans are pushing back and are ready to win the 28th Amendment together! Please join this cross-partisan effort to reclaim our democracy and RSVP now!
