ensures that every citizen has an equal voice in government.
By tracking what activities are being done to resolve the primary concerns of constituents, we are able to make sure that voices are being heard. Politicians then become accountable for what they have accomplished in office, and not on how much money they raise, how many years they've been in office or how familiar their name is.
We believe that participation in government should be easy. That’s why, with
, all you have to do is create a checklist of your top issues. We do all the work in terms of identifying who should hear your concern, how many others have identified the same problem as you, and what is being done to resolve this issue.
We hope that citizens will become more engaged with a system that is responsive. By creating online communities dedicated to political problem-solving we believe that
will foster a healthier civic society and democratic process. And, by connecting with others who share your same concerns, you will have an immediate measure of the power of your voice. Through your individual list, our collective nation is improved!
