Join American Promise Massachusetts!
In 2018, American Promise citizen leaders in Massachusetts won the People Govern, Not Money ballot measure, creating the first-in-the-nation state Citizens Commission on the Constitutional Amendment. Read the commission’s first report here and the second report here.
The commission has had over 20 public meetings, authored two comprehensive reports, and is serving as a model for the nation on what a citizen-created watchdog institution can look like.

Victory on Question 2 – We did it!
Over 71% of Bay State Voters voted “yes” on Question 2, creating an official Citizens Commission to advance the constitutional amendment that will end corporate and special interest money dominance of our elections.
The incredible People Govern, Not Money / Yes on 2 volunteers collected over 130,000 signatures from all 351 towns in Massachusetts, sent over 13,000 post cards urging neighbors to vote “yes” on 2, and made thousands of phone calls. Now Massachusetts is leading the way towards a more representative democracy for people, not profits.
But the work doesn’t stop here. We must continue this incredible effort to make sure we have the most effective Citizens Commission so we can advance this 28th Amendment here in Massachusetts and across the nation.
