While trying to understand if the food we were purchasing for our families was genetically modified, as there was no clear labeling on it, we noticed that we, like many others, were unaware, or detached from how our government functions at all levels --federal, state and local.
There was no simple way to get information, and if you did receive any information, it was even harder to keep it up-to-date and organized.
After the Nov 2016 elections, the political landscape quickly changed and the important question was no longer "How do I get basic information?" but "How do I ensure I remain informed and involved?"
The spark in our society to become involved in government has left many asking questions such as:
“I want to stay involved, but I don’t know where to start.”... “What do I do next?”
“I need to stay involved but this is all overwhelming.”... “How can I help?”
These questions became our foundation, and defined out mission.
We set out to build a platform that removes the barrier for participation in government, making it simple to get started and easy to stay involved. The platform is for every person to have a political voice, and be involved in our government and society.
