Whether your issue is the opioid crisis, the $21 trillion national debt, a healthy economy where businesses have an equal chance to compete, the rights of states to make their own election laws, or affordable healthcare, in order to win meaningful lasting reform, we must fix our constitution first so our government serves people, not lobbyists and campaign donors.
Join Wisconsin United to Amend and American Promise as we launch our joint campaign for Wisconsin Congressional District 8 to gain the critical support of Representative Mike Gallagher. This free event will be led by Wisconsin United to Amend’s George Penn, American Promise State Manager Azor Cole, and American Promise Citizen Empowerment Coordinator Kimberly Clinch.
Wisconsin’s 8th District is a critical campaign not only for Wisconsin but also for the national movement for a 28th Amendment to get money out of politics. Representative Gallagher shows the potential to support our cause and be a congressional leader for reform, especially among Republicans and young legislators.
This campaign launch, will cover:
– Actions we must take to get our message to Representative Gallagher
– How to speak effectively about the need for a 28th Amendment
– Getting meetings with legislators and winning their support
– How to build off support won from local resolutions
– Effective media engagement strategies
By attending this meeting and then taking action, we will not only be providing critical support for a national 28th Amendment, but also proving to our elected officials that people – not money, not corporations, not super PACs – govern the citizens of these United States.
It’s hard to know what’s true in the he said/she said swirl of our current news cycles. What is real and dangerous is the grip of big money on American politics. Encouragingly, Americans are pushing back on this corruption and are ready to win the 28th Amendment together! Please join this cross-partisan effort to reclaim our democracy and RSVP now!
