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.

American Promise citizen leaders gather at the Stroudwater Distillery for the Portland, Maine, American Promise Association launch.

American Promise President Jeff Clements recently returned to Maine, where he attended Colby College and started his family for the launch of the Portland, Maine, American Promise Association.

American Promise President Jeff Clements recently helped kick off the launch of the Portland, Maine, American Promise Association. Clements attended Colby College and started his family in Maine, so this APA launch was especially meaningful to him.

“I first came here when I was 17 years old, went to Colby College and met my beloved Nancy, and we first started our family here in Portland,” Clements said. “I ran for local office here and learned to be a lawyer here.”

APAs enable Americans across the country to have a tangible impact on the movement for a 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics.

“Our system at American Promise is about creating local hubs of people, just like you,” Clements told the APA launch attendees at Stroudwater Distillery in Portland, Maine.

Clements believes citizen leaders have the opportunity to seize this moment in history to make lasting change that will empower all Americans, regardless of wealth.

“I think what American history teaches us over and over again is—and I think in our hearts, most Americans actually think this—is that we actually believe in our American promise of equal citizenship, of human liberty and our own responsibility,” Clements said. “And when asked to step up, Americans step up and do what’s right. And I think that’s what’s happening with the 28th Amendment campaign.”

Watch the video above to see how American Promise is empowering citizen leaders across the country are addressing the issue of our time: big money in politics.
