It’s on.

It’s on. Americans are rising together to end the domination of big money and corrupting concentrated power in our political system. We’re saying enough is enough, and taking on the challenge to win big, generational reform and renewal for our nation and people.

At American Promise’s third National Citizen Leadership Conference, we’ll connect and network around winning the next amendment to the U.S. Constitution to put power in the hands of all Americans instead of a powerful donor class of plutocrats. Then we’ll take our movement straight to Congress for Citizen Lobby Day on Capitol Hill.

It’s on. The time for bold action and systemic change is now. Join us! Learn more
