Strengthening Voting Rights Through Democracy Reform

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.

It is the bedrock principle of democracy-that every vote counts equally.

Voting Rights and Money in Politics

The escalating and unbridled influence of big money in politics undermines the equality of every person’s voice. When those with access to concentrated wealth can use that money to influence the outcomes of elections and policy decisions, they drown out the voices of ordinary Americans. Alongside legislation that limits voting rights, this inequitable system leaves citizens increasingly isolated, angry, and divided. Passing a constitutional amendment to limit the influence of money in politics is an important first step in democracy reforms aimed toward ensuring the fundamental principle that every vote counts equally. Alongside legislation that limits voting rights, this inequitable system leaves citizens increasingly isolated, angry, and divided. Polling shows that a majority of Americans are unhappy about the influence of money in politics.

What We Can Do About It?

American Promise is working with Americans across the country to advance the For Our Freedom Amendment and ensure an equal voice for every American. The For Our Freedom Amendment is supported by more than 75% of Americans of every political persuasion. With this foundation in place, we can secure voting rights and other democracy reforms to ensure every American’s voice is heard.
