American Promise to Host 28th Amendment March & Citizen Lobby Day on Capitol Hill
Why: 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.
