American Promise unites Americans to win the For Our Freedom Amendment to secure  elections and government for we the people—not big money, not corporations, not unions, not shadowy super PACs and special interests.

The For Our Freedom Amendment:

  • Protects free speech and the voice of all Americans and ends the domination of our elections and corruption of our representative government by dark money and elite donors.
  • Has overwhelming support from Americans of every political viewpoint
  • Offers lasting reform and breaks the two-party incumbent-favoring big money system that locks out competition, choice, and progress for the nation. .
  • Is the lasting, constitutional method for rebuilding checks and balances, federalism and local freedom against global money nationalizing every election and dividing America.
  • Frees business from pay to play politics and unfair competition from big global corporations that are spending millions of dollars to buy political influence that destroys the level playing field.

“As an average American, it is nearly impossible to compete with billionaires, but what they can’t buy with money is the deep love and passion we feel for the outdoors, our unique states and communities, and the freedom our Constitution guarantees.”

Why an Amendment?

It’s necessary.

The Constitution gives Americans a tool to protect our rights when our freedom is threatened: the amendment process. Eight of our 27 amendments so far corrected Supreme Court decisions that compromised the Constitution. Now that the Court made the mistake of inventing a new “right” of the wealthy to spend unlimited (often secret) money in elections, we must act again. No state legislature or Congress can fix it without an amendment. It is up to us.

It has super-majority support across the partisan spectrum and unifies America.

Over 90% of Americans believe that government only represents a few big interests, not the good of the people or the country. While we have lost faith in the corrupted system, we have a huge opportunity to fix it for good: three out of four Americans support the For Our Freedom constitutional amendment. We can fix the problem and unify the country by working together to get it done.  

It’s the Foundational Reform We Need.

The For Our Freedom Amendment is the key to fixing a broken system that makes high-dollar donors more powerful than every other American. It offers a lasting, constitutional solution to protect free speech and the equal right of every American to representation and a vote that counts.
