Information for Constituents

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.

Help Collect Candidate Pledges in Support of the For Our Freedom Amendment!

Thank you for helping with the American Promise candidate pledge effort! This is important – candidates who sign the pledge today could soon be elected officials who vote in support of the For Our Freedom Amendment.

Volunteer Instructions & Tips

We are collecting pledges from incumbent office holders, as well as new candidates, at all levels of government; city, state, and federal office seekers. 

Since this is candidate activity, please contact candidates using their campaign email, phone, or website. Avoid using government contact info for incumbent candidates. If you’re requesting an in-person meeting please pick a location outside of government offices, such as a local coffee shop or similar. 

Step 1: Check the Candidate Pledge Database to find out if your candidates and elected officials have already signed the pledge.

  • If your candidates HAVE signed, send them a quick note of thanks.

  • If your candidates HAVE NOT signed, proceed to step 2 and get them to sign!

Step 2: Contact your candidates and urge them to take the pledge.

  • Find your current elected officials who may be running for re-election here: or here:
  • Find all candidates seeking office, many for the first time, here:
  • Visit the candidate’s website to find their contact information. Be sure to contact candidates who are incumbents using their campaign contact info, not their government contact info.
  • Send your candidates an email asking them to sign the pledge. You can use this email template. Feel free to personalize it! 

If you are asking the candidate to sign in person or are mailing the pledge, here is a PDF you can print out. Once signed, email a photo or digital copy to

Step 3: Follow up

  • Follow up is key. A week after initial outreach, if they haven’t yet signed, follow up by phone. Candidates are often short on time.

  • Ask for a 15-to 30-minute meeting, which is more likely to be accepted than longer meetings.

Step 4: Thank your candidates for signing the pledge!

  • Write your candidate a thank you note for taking the pledge.

  • Thank them publicly on your social media accounts – make sure to tag both the candidate and American Promise! @usapromise 

Other helpful tips:

If you are connected with an organization that is holding an event or debate with candidates, try to get the question,”Do you support the For Our Freedom Amendment?” asked at the event. You can coordinate with the organizers ahead of time, or plan to ask the question yourself.
