Democratize our Democracy

It’s time for you to take action.
We connect local, progressive campaigns with the web, tech, data and design professionals willing to volunteer their skills to support them.

How this works

You’ve already taken the first step by coming here. Our mission is for you to use passions and skills to strengthen progressive movements and make activism your new favorite hobby. We evaluate your interests, your skills and your availability to connect you with campaigns in need.

Why Pitch In?

We know it’s critically important to elect more Democrats and progressive leaders on the local level. But it’s often those small, local races that have the hardest time getting off the ground. We believe that a lot of the resources and help our candidates need to win can be provided on a volunteer basis from skilled people ready to donate their time.

The beauty of this system is that geography isn’t important. We believe that voter contact is most effective within communities. But web design and outreach, data modeling and targeting can be done by anyone with the skills, anywhere they are.

Free up your campaign to do the hard and important work on the ground. We’ll help you connect with tech do-gooders to do the rest.

Who are we?

We are a group of friends, progressive organizers and start-up techies passionate about making activism accessible for everyone.
