Our Mission

Wyoming Promise’s mission is to advocate for an amendment to the United States Constitution to overturn the 2010 United States Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. FEC, and thereby create space for national and state-level campaign finance reform. Through this reform, we are fighting to restore the voices of ordinary citizens. By doing so we wish to insure that our representatives at both the national and state governments work only for the citizens of Wyoming, and not for their wealthy donors.

Wyoming Promise’s objective is to place a citizen’s initiative on the 2020 ballot that would call for an amendment to the United States Constitution to declare that corporations are not people and money is not speech. To do this, we need to gather 39,000 valid signatures of registered Wyoming voters by October of 2018.

Because Wyoming Promise is cross-partisan, it will not endorse any political candidate for any office at any time. It will, however, welcome endorsements by current and former public officials, and candidates for public office, who agree that money in politics has reached toxic levels and who wish to solve that problem by repealing Citizens United through an amendment to the United States Constitution. Wyoming Promise will list any current or former public official or candidate for office, who agrees with our mission on a Supporters Page on our website, but only with the specific permission of such official or candidate.

“The Wyoming Constitution guarantees equal rights to “members of the human race.” Corporations are not people, and therefore should not have any right to spend an unlimited glut of money to influence our elections. We must get this “dark money” out of our political system by amending our Constitution to declare that corporations are not people and money is not speech. Join us – there is work to do!”

Alan K. Simpson, Retired U.S. Senator, Wyoming (1979-1997)

Join Us

Wyoming Promise is a grass-roots organization of Wyoming citizens. All strategic decisions are made, and all actions are taken, only by Wyoming citizens. We are cross-partisan: members of any political party, or those unaffiliated with any political party, are welcome to join our movement.

This is a movement started not by corporations or savvy political operatives, but by the citizens. If we’re going to join the fight to bring democracy back to the people of Wyoming and out of the hands of private interests, it’s going to take the efforts of volunteers around the state collecting signatures and talking to their friends, family, and neighbors about the importance of campaign finance reform.
