Join the Citizen UpRising in 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 Commissions First Report Here
Now, we’re making sure the Commission is as effective as possible in advancing the Amendment here in Massachusetts. You can get involved in our three committees:
- Publicity and Amplification- This group will be the microphone for the Citizens Commission. They will populate local media outlets with stories and updates from the Commission and be the grassroots spokespeople for the 28th Amendment.
- Events and Celebration Coordination- This committee will help plan public-facing events with the Commission. They will help bring the Commission to as many Bay Staters as possible through engaging events that will bring communities together to support the Amendment.
- Research and Story Gathering- This group will help research the local impacts of big money on Massachusetts politics. They will help the Commission gather compelling testimony to be shared at public hearings and eventually compile to be featured in the Commission’s final report.
Listen to our bi-weekly conference call recording to learn more! These committees will be organizing across the state to amplify the voices of Massachusetts voters ready for a 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics. Contact us to get involved.
You can help in other ways! Donate to American Promise and support the work of volunteers in Massachusetts and around the country as we work to win the 28th Amendment!
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.
