Sign the Pledge!
Alaskans are joining Americans across the nation to come together and stand up to big money and say the decisions that matter in our states and our lives should be up to us. Join us today by signing the pledge.
Recent polling in Alaska reveals that 71% of likely Alaskan voters say they would support the proposed For Our Freedom Amendment that would enact reasonable limits on campaign financing by corporations, unions, wealthy individuals and outside money in elections.
“Runaway money in politics is drowning out the voices of ordinary Alaskans. It is flooding us with toxic and divisive misinformation, and eroding the foundations of our representative government.”
WALTER "BUD" CARPENETI, Former Alaska Supreme Court Chief Justice
What’s Happening in Alaska?
- Alaskans voted “yes” to the For Our Freedom amendment
- Active volunteer network across the state
- Seeking volunteers to drive our nationwide efforts
The American Promise Alaska campaign is an active, grassroots, volunteer-led effort that has kept the issue of big money in politics at the forefront of the political conversation through media outreach, petition signing events and much more.
“While there is still a long way to go, any policy that helps to place the power of our democracy into the hands of the people and eliminate dark money from politics is a step in the right direction.”
