Vision/Mission

Vision

A healthy, just, and lasting American republic, in which Constitutional rights for human beings are secure, and all citizens are equal, with the right and the responsibility to govern effectively together.

A renewal of our national covenant of human liberty, equal citizenship, and responsible self-government.

Mission

To empower, inspire, and organize Americans to win the cause of our time: the 28th Amendment. This historic reform will rebalance our politics and government by putting the rights of individual citizens and the interests of the nation before the privileges of concentrated money, corporations, unions, political parties, and superPACs.

Strategy

American Promise leads the cross-partisan, fifty-state campaign for the 28th Amendment so that people, not money, govern America.

We have three drivers to win ratification of the 28th Amendment now:

  1. Our distributed, decentralized model supports, connects and amplifies cross-partisan local action by all Americans all over the country, driven by our national Citizen Uprising, Civic Courage program, public events, and our acclaimed National Citizen Leadership Conference;

  2. We build national consensus and determination, vetting and driving forward specific, effective language of the 28th Amendment with our Writing The 28th Amendment program and inviting all Americans into the process; and

  3. We hold elected representatives accountable to ensure that they represent the good of the country and the will of the people for big, real reform through the 28th Amendment, rather than do the bidding of big donors and special interests.

Together, this three-prong strategy is building the super-majority support in Congress and throughout the country to pass and ratify the 28th Amendment and renew the American promise of human liberty, equal citizenship, and effective self-government.
