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

  • How Money is Painting Your Life: Art, Money, and Politics!

     

      ap-logo-color.pngfree_speech_for_people.png

    Why doesn't the government represent your interests or you? Why do politicians enact policies that help the wealthy more than the middle class? Why can the private prison industry have such a large influence on pro-incarceration policies and immigration? 

    Please join American Promise and Free Speech for People for a talk on democracy, money in politics, and corporate rights! Artist Michael Conroy will join Jasmine Gomez and Joyce Sanchez for an event that centers art to discuss the history of how corporations and wealthy interests are effecting not only our government system, but our everyday lives. 

    This event will give everyday people the tools to be activists in Boston's money in politics community.
