Our Story

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.

Why Purple 

The name "Purple Patriot" comes from

Purple the blending of RED and BLUE

and our belief that all people or Patriots, from liberal conservatives to conservative liberals, need to find common ground to move forward and collectively govern our communities.

Equality

Government 2.0 

Government is broken. Government's influence on society is large. 

In 2018.....

Our government officials ask us to communicate using POSTCARDS, FAXES, PETITIONS, CALLS and TOWNHALLS ?!?

Our government officials DO NOT have standardized performance rating systems ?!?

Purple Patriots is a simple way for Everyone to stay involved and active in government, while demanding government start using technology and platforms to actively communicate with Everyone they represent.   Plus our platform holds elected officials accountable with individual report cards/performance reviews.

a government of equality and inclusion

Women represent over 50% of the population and less than 19% of Congress.  Women are not at the table when policies are being drafted, discussed and decided upon.

Purple patriot's missions is to achieve gender parity in government.  We understand change is a marathon not a sprint and developed a platform to address long term engagement.
