Join Us in Minnesota
Minnesota citizens are joining Americans across the nation to come together and stand up to outside money and to keep state decisions in our own hands. Join us today by signing the pledge.
When you sign the Minnesota Pledge, you'll get an email response with our upcoming events through November 2022, the link to our Facebook Page and details how to get involved in our state.
According to a report from January of this year from Americans for Tax Fairness, Billionaires are spending 39 times more on Federal elections since the Citizens United Supreme Court decision in 2010. The report finds that almost 40% of all billionaire campaign contributions made since 1990 occurred during the 2020 season.
“The people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.”
The For Our Freedom Amendment
The For Our Freedom Amendment exists to put the power back in the hands of the American people. Minnesota citizens and elected officials are currently powerless to stop the billionaires and foreign forces from buying our elections and influencing our policies. This reform will put the rights of the people before the privileges of the super-wealthy, corporations, unions, and super PACs.
Who Are We?
- We are Minnesotans from all walks of life and political viewpoints coming together to secure our freedom and ensure a government Of The People, free of the undue influence of outside money in our elections and policies.
- We are all volunteers - Democrats, Republicans, and everything in between - with no agenda other than enabling our elected officials to fully represent their constituents.
How Do I Get Involved? Americans make big reform and renewal happen in historic moments of crisis, as we now are experiencing. But it doesn’t happen without Americans willing to step up to help drive that change. The success of our campaign does not depend on Washington lobbyists or online petitions — it depends on citizen unity and action: We the People, speaking up and taking action where we live.
“Money is power, and when in the hands of few, it undermines democracy. It has become clear that the only way to restore the American Promise of Fair and Equal Representation is by passing an Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”
Governor Arne Carlson, Nov. 2017
From our Minnesota team:
We can’t have a strong Republic without a robust, free and fair democratic process. We need to be able to set limits on how much can be spent to influence our elections and policies. We cannot do that without passing and ratifying an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Join us!

“Americans across the board believe that candidates and representatives should listen to, represent, and be accountable to the people who can vote for them, not a few big national donors...The time is ripe for the American people to engage in constitutional politics by pressing for a 21st-century constitutional amendment. ”
