There's too much money in politics.
American Promise has a solution.

We are uniting and empowering all Americans to pass the For Our Freedom constitutional amendment. By joining together across the political spectrum, we are using our Constitutional power to restore the rights of Americans to regulate election money, protect free speech & representation, and combat systemic corruption.

The Tipping Point for Change

86% of Americans think the influence of money in politics is the major threat to democracy, and solving this issue has supermajority support from all Americans across the political spectrum. It is one of the top 4 issues Americans want Congress to address right now.

American Promise was founded to solve this problem once and for all by passing the For Our Freedom constitutional amendment – so we can set reasonable limits on campaign spending and restore the voice of the American People.


A Winning Strategy 

Since we launched our 10-year plan in 2017, we have built a fully cross-partisan citizen-driven organization and a replicable state model for success. We mobilize volunteers, leaders and staff in states across America to support and drive passage and ratification of the For Our Freedom Amendment.

Our Movement Will Strengthen Our Shared Values


America was founded on freedom. For Our Freedom, we will amend the constitution to combat corruption, end elite and foreign money control of our elections, and secure the free speech and representation of all Americans.


America was founded on equality. All are created equal, endowed with unalienable rights. When those with massive concentrated wealth can use that wealth to control elections, we do not have equal rights or representative self-government.


To keep the promise of freedom, Americans have always answered the call to serve. When big money donors turn elections into ugly and divisive two-party contests, Americans who would serve stay away, and neighbor is turned against neighbor.


Free people are creative people. Americans have always sought to solve problems and shape the future we want through new invention and innovation. However, corruption creates a top-heavy system that stifles innovation and creativity.


Let’s face it, Americans like to win. And a fair chance to compete benefits everyone. But not in our political system, where a few big donors call the shots.

Hint: It's Not Mainers.

Big money in politics is a nationwide problem that affects us all. In our recent report, Under the Avalanche, American Promise investigates election spending in the state of Maine, where wealthy, out-of-state interests spent millions on disinformation, negative advertising and lies to influence the 2020 Senate race.
