what we do

Our mission is to turn America blue by building a movement to flip states. To build this movement, we need to radically simplify political action. We focus on state legislature elections—races that play a huge role in national elections but are often overlooked. Information about these races is hard to find, and busy people don’t have the time to sift through it. That’s where we come in. We’ll tell you which races are more important, who’s running, and how you can support them.

We’re grateful to have you on our team. Together, we’ll fight to rebuild our country. 

 

who we are

We are a team of organizers, politics junkies, strategists, and engineers who met each other working on the Hillary Clinton campaign in Columbus, Ohio and Brooklyn, New York. We come from a variety of worlds - international development, consulting, tech, and social enterprise. But we were united by the profoundly moving experience of working on the campaign, and a resolve never to let November 9, 2016 happen again.

Our advisors are leaders in the tech, politics, business, and nonprofit communities. They share our commitment to making volunteers and activists even more effective through analytics, tools, and resources.

We have been covered in The New York TimesWIRED, USA TodayTIME, The Wall Street JournalTechCrunchVICENBCNews, and others. See our press page for more information.
