American Promise is both a local and national network. We have an exciting nationwide strategy and clear plan for victory. The success of our strategy does not depend on Washington lobbyists or online petitions — it depends on you and your community.
American Promise Chapters bring our movement to your community, and help build a national network to create country-wide support for The 28th Amendment. If you’re interested in beginning the process of starting, or joining, a chapter, start by filling out the form below and contacting our Citizen Empowerment Coordinator, Kimberly Clinch at [email protected] .

5 Steps to Starting a Chapter
Set up a call with American Promise
Reach out to Kimberly Clinch ([email protected]) about starting an chapter in your community.
Host an inviting team call and support team members to have a great turnout for the chapter launch in your community.
Share the vision of the new program with allies and get commitment to host an inviting team meeting with 5-10 people. Set a date, time and location for the call. American Promise will do training and role-playing of a call to one (or a few) of your friends, and share a sample invite e-mail.
Welcome AP staff to your community for an energizing chapter launch meeting.
With significant coaching and follow up from our inviting team call, we’ll be ready for the chapter launch. This meeting will be roughly 2 hours in length and will include breakouts, roll playing, sharing of personal stories, planned action items for immediate engagement, and inspiration for sustained citizen action.
Activate your AP Chapter with the 4-part new group training.
Here, you’ll deepen your connection to each other, your commitment to a 28th Amendment, and your skills and confidence as an activist. Members of your chapter will be confident in their ability to meet with an editorial board, a legislator or community organization.
Gather each month with your chapter and chapters around the country for the monthly conference call.
Each call is a launchpad for action and will feature great guest speakers like those at the NCLC with a Q&A period, grassroots victories shared from around the country such as barriers chapters have overcome, a section focused on helping you become better spokespersons for ratifying a 28th Amendment, and a section focused on the month’s action.
