Welcome to American Promise Michigan!
American Promise is leading the drive for the next amendment to the US Constitution to stop corruption and put power in the hands of all Americans not just big donors. Sign the petition that we’ll deliver to your elected officials: we the people want reasonable limits on election spending so all Americans have a voice and an equal vote!
We’re Americans – Republicans, Democrats, Independents – working together to win a constitutional amendment to save American democracy!
The Supreme Court has made it unconstitutional to limit money spent in elections. Over $324 million was spent in Michigan’s 2018 midterm elections, making it the most expensive election year in state history. The result? Local governments beholden to those other than their constituents, candidates dependent on major donors, growing industry power that opens the door to life-threatening situations like the opioid crisis, in brief, a government and the policies it creates up for sale to the highest bidder.
Our citizen leaders and volunteers are working on passing a resolution, which would add Michigan to the growing list of states calling on Congress to pass the 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics.
