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.

In this Zoom interview, our newest American Promise team members, Empowerment Director Dr. Jessica Hare and Communications Coordinator Zyeisha Allen, share their professional perspectives on the 28th Amendment, why they’re passionate about this movement, and what they hope to accomplish in their new roles. Read their bios below and watch the video to learn about the perspectives, expertise and passion they bring to our nationwide movement.

Zyeisha “Zye” Allen is an Atlanta, GA, native and a graduate of Spelman College. After college, she found herself truly enthralled in the work of content creation and seeing goals come together as a result of creative and purposeful work. Zye joined American Promise because she believes in a government by the people and not big-money corporations. She knows the importance of a strong digital presence and, as an advocate for social justice, wants to use her skills to provide insight on the 28th Amendment as an institute for change.

Dr. Jessica Hare is a native of Manning, SC, and attended public schools in Clarendon County District 2. She received her Doctor of Social Work degree from the University of Southern California and is an alumna of the University of South Carolina and Winthrop University. Jessica has over 13 years of professional social work experience ranging from child welfare, military social work, medical social work, and school social work. She is an active member of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women where she serves as the Third Vice President of Membership for her local chapter, priding herself on upholding the organization’s mission and vision. She has proven to be committed to the empowerment of black women and girls while advocating on their behalf to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment. She also volunteers as a designated speaker for the Domestic Violence Speaker’s Bureau in Charlotte, NC, and has been chosen as the keynote speaker for many domestic violence events. Jessica plans to continue using her social work knowledge and skills to stand against social injustice.
