Breaking Big Money’s Grip on our Political System
June 30 @ 8:00 pm

Pre-Register required for this Zoom video conference here.

June 30th we invite you and millions of Americans hungry for change, from American Promise, Our Revolution, and RootsAction, to join two of the biggest change makers around: Nina Turner and U.S. Representative Ro Khanna (CA-17), Bernie 2020 campaign co-chairs.

Get fired up as Rep. Khanna and Nina Turner delve into how we break big money’s grip on our political system and the movement for historic reform fueled by people-powered campaigns.

U.S. Representative Ro Khanna (CA-17) stands at the vanguard of national progressive politics, serving as First Vice Chair of the House Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Sanders presidential campaign, while remaining committed to bipartisan problem-solving in Washington. A member of the House Oversight Committee, Ro has worked for greater government transparency and on the House Armed Services Committee, fighting against special interests and their monopolistic behavior, tackling private companies that gouge from our defense budget and jack up the cost of our national security.

Hailed as the Shirley Chisholm of our times and known for her inspirational speaking style Nina Turner is a cable news commentator, defining political icon, and American Promise Advisory Board Member. She is national co-chair of the Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign, led the grassroots organization Our Revolution, is a former state senator from Ohio and former professor of African American history. While serving in the Ohio Senate, Turner sought to find common ground with Republicans and Independents and to find paths for reconciliation between long-dueling interests.

I am encouraged to see the progress of this proposed Constitutional amendment.

Olympia Snowe

More than 80% of Americans know we need this Constitutional amendment so that all citizens can exercise our free speech rights and participate in self-government on equal terms. Constitutional amendments take persistence and action from Americans who put the country ahead of their political party. Stand With Maine and American Promise are bringing Mainers and all Americans together to make this Constitutional amendment a reality, and all of us will be better for it.
