I join the overwhelming majority of Americans to demand an amendment to the United States Constitution to end the domination of big money in politics and give voice to all Americans.
 
I will stand with all Americans, without regard to party or other differences, and urge all candidates and elected officials to do the same, in order to pass and ratify such a constitutional amendment as soon as possible.

As an average American, it is nearly impossible to compete with billionaires, but what they can’t buy with money is the deep love and passion we feel for the outdoors and the freedom our Constitution guarantees.

It's time for moral leadership within our businesses, our communities and our government that will return to fair competition, checks and balances, and accountability.

I am honored to be a part of an organization devoted to bringing people together in order to reform our democracy. As someone with a passion for working on teams that are building momentum for new ideas and new ways of doing things, I am eager to unite all Americans around the For Our Freedom Amendment.

We need to repair the Constitutional foundation for election spending reform so that all Americans may participate in self-government as equal citizens. I hope all Americans can come together with American Promise to help in this urgent, cross-partisan work.

As we approach the 250th anniversary of our nation's independence, ratifying this proposed constitutional amendment would renew and preserve the cherished democratic ideals of the founders.

We need to strengthen our democracy if we want good jobs with good wages, energy sources that are renewable and affordable, and strong, resilient communities. That means we need to win the For Our Freedom Amendment and restore equal citizenship and liberty for all.

It is time to accept the historical gravity of our situation. It is time for Americans of all political viewpoints to come together to win the For Our Freedom Amendment — and to renew U.S. democracy again.

Repairing the loss of political voice among our citizenry, our ever-increasing wealth disparity, and our loss of military credibility in an ever more unstable world may be the greatest challenge America has ever confronted. But as always, Americans uniting together can do something big to fix this.

Big money privileges those with the means to pour unlimited amounts of money into campaigns, which drowns out the voices of all Americans, especially those living in poverty and experiencing the harmful effects of institutional and social racism.
