|Description||Civic Engagement Platform|
|Angel, 11/2010 |
POPVOX is a civic engagement platform that meshes real-time legislative data with users’ personal stories and sentiment. POPVOX curates and delivers public input to government in a format tailored to actionable policy decisions.
Personal stories and opinions matter to lawmakers, but millions of incoming phone calls and emails just aren’t manageable. POPVOX does the work of aggregating, verifying, sorting, and counting opinions and delivering input to lawmakers in a transparent, structured format. It’s the only website of its kind—and it’s nonpartisan. Serving individuals, Congress, and advocacy professionals, POPVOX is akin to a “Legislative LinkedIn” – bringing transparency, efficiency, and accountability to policymaking.
POPVOX is a “civic startup” – a for-profit corporation with a dual mission to scale and return value to investors while empowering individuals and making government more accountable.
POPVOX Pro provides a collection of grassroots advocacy tools for organizations of any size to mount a significant legislative campaign, harnessing the power of targeted grassroots action. Advocacy organizations, trade associations, and corporations pay a monthly fee for POPVOX widgets, enabling networks to write Congress through embedded POPVOX tools, displaying dynamic legislative content.
