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.

Statement of Jeff Clements, president of American Promise, on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Shelby v. Holder:

“Over the past decade, the Supreme Court has substituted its own prejudices and preferences in place of the law of the land and the equal Constitutional rights of every American. From striking down fair election spending laws in Citizens United to riding roughshod over the Voting Rights Act in Shelby, the Court has cast aside the right of all Americans to be represented, heard, vote and participate in self-government.

The result has been gross inequality, corruption of government, crisis, and exposure of our democracy to serious erosion. As before in our history, Americans are rising to this threat, and will reverse these catastrophic decisions of the Court, and come together for justice and renewal of the American Promise of equal rights and opportunity for all.”
