American Promise


American Promise is building a movement to win passage of a federal constitutional amendment to allow Congress or the states to reasonably regulate and limit campaign contributions. Our national campaign is focused on “reducing money in politics” – now a top issue for almost all Americans, regardless of party or political preference. We empower people in all 50 states to connect, learn, act and lead efforts to mobilize their districts, states, and networks.

Our team is passionate, collaborative, courageous, adaptable, and fun. We love setting big goals and learning lessons on the way to achieving them. We celebrate our differences and work to ensure that our staff, donors, volunteers, and supporters reflect the tremendous diversity of the American people as we strive together on the most American of national projects: amending the US Constitution. Come make history with us!
