Unchecked political spending has taken power away from everyday Americans. American Promise, a nonpartisan organization, is working to pass the For Our Freedom Amendment. This amendment will secure elections and the government for “We The People”, eliminating dark money political influence. The American Promise Business Network is uniting business leaders, owners, and executives across the country in this movement. Using its unique perspectives, influence, and connections, this community is working together to help protect businesses, innovation, and healthy markets. Hear from American Promise leadership and business leaders about what the business network is, its successes, and how you can join this community of powerful voices.

It is no accident that our American experiment feels less secure and has become less capable of solving problems. Elections are increasingly swayed by money. And money is becoming increasingly concentrated, dark and from outside one’s voting district. Each election cycle brings more division, disinformation and dysfunction. The powerful few smother the voices of 330 million Americans. Until this imbalance is fixed and every person’s voice matters, we will never address America’s most pressing challenges.
180 congress members, 40 senators and 22 states are prepared to support this amendment.
The American Promise amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows reasonable limits on the power of money in our political system. The voices and contributions of all Americans will count, with small-dollar donations incentivized and the mega-dollar donations, foreign money, dark money, and disinformation eliminated. ‘We the People’ will decide how best to protect our rights, voices and representation against corruption and out-of-control spending by the most powerful interests, so we can keep the promise of American freedom and self-government forever.
