Assistant to the President

About American Promise

At American Promise, we believe that all people are created equal, that freedom is the unbreakable aspiration of humankind and each of us, and that responsibility for ensuring the conditions for the survival of equality and freedom, and for a thriving society, is ours and every American’s.

Our team is passionate, collaborative, courageous, adaptable, and fun. We love setting big goals and learning lessons on the way to achieving them. We celebrate our differences and work to ensure that our staff, donors, volunteers, and supporters reflect the tremendous diversity of the American people as we strive together on the most American of national projects: amending the US Constitution.

The For Our Freedom Amendment authorizes limits and regulation of money used to influence local, state, and/or federal elections. American Promise unites Americans in advocacy for the Amendment to combat systemic corruption and protect our voice, votes, communities, and future. We empower people in all 50 states to connect, learn, act and lead efforts to mobilize their districts, states, and networks to ensure we pass this amendment. By working together—across party lines and city limits—we can make our belief a reality. We also lead and partner in specific state campaigns to advance our constitutional amendment: 22 states have taken formal action to support the amendment, with six winning state ballot initiatives among them.
