Welcome to the Citizen Uprising
Congratulations on passing I-735 in 2016! I-735 took years of hard work and Washington is a guiding light for the entire country. That's just the beginning.
To pass a Constitutional Amendment, we need 2/3 of the Senate and House and 3/4 of the States, so we can't sit back and rest on our laurels. Our attention now turns to translating the cross-partisan support of the people of Washington into cross-partisan sponsorship and votes in Congress. Several members of the Washington Congressional Delegation are already on board, but not all.
Once the full state Congressional Delegation is on board, then we'll turn our attention to getting (and keeping!) Washington ready to ratify. Whether you are new to grassroots action or a seasoned community organizer, there is a lot to do.
American Promise is working to help connect people in Washington who want to get involved and help out. 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.

We CAN make the difference.
