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.

ACTION ALERT: New Hampshire Close to Being 20th State Calling for 28th Amendment

ACTION ALERT: New Hampshire Close to Being 20th State Calling for 28th Amendment

We’re close. Thanks to grassroots pressure, New Hampshire is barreling towards becoming the 20th state demanding Congress pass a 28th Amendment so people – not money, not corporations, not special interests – govern. Things are moving quickly in the state legislature, and it’s time to turn up the heat.

This needs your support immediately. Here’s how to get in action action today to make sure HB 1524 wins!

“As a country we fight with each other over every issue from climate change to gun control, taxes to healthcare, when the fact is that none of our fighting, on either side, will mean much of anything to those in power until we have a government that actually represents people, instead of whatever group has the most cash,” said New Hampshire State Representative Ellen Read, the lead sponsor of HB 1524.

19 states and over 800 cities and towns have formally called Congress for the 28th Amendment.

“Like the vast majority of people in our country, New Hampshire citizens are fed up with money’s political influence. Sustained grassroots activity spurred this action in the state legislature – that’s how democracies are meant to work, that’s how we’ll win the 28th Amendment,” said Ben Gubits, American Promise Associate Director.

HB1524 formally calls Congress to pass a Constitutional amendment addressing the role of money in politics, as well as partisan gerrymandering. Foundational democratic reform like this is exciting, and needed.

This strong 28th Amendment resolution reflects the good work of Fix It America, and the determination of the people of New Hampshire.

“We cannot fix anything until we fix this,” said Representative Read.

With your action, we have a chance at major victory.

Help New Hampshire become the 20th state calling for the 28th Amendment!
