Welcome to American Promise Michigan!

Sign the Pledge

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.








Grow your impact. Providing your full address ensures your elected officials know where you stand. 



With your submission, you authorize American Promise to 1) publicly share your support to inspire others to join and 2) tell your elected officials that you want them to take action in support of the amendment. You may easily edit or withdraw your support at any time by contacting [email protected].

 

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.
