RUN FOR OFFICE
“The Civic Tech Exchange will be a hub for online civic participation. Our vision is to create a dynamic database of civic tech tools and resources with distinct views for citizens, software developers, leaders and donors.
- Citizens will choose the communities they belong to and issues they care about, then use and evaluate civic tech tools that have been configured to engage them.
- Developers will research projects that align with their skills and interests, then bid on paid work or gain recognition for volunteering.
- Leaders will be able to easily find appropriate tools to engage their constituents.
- Donors will be able to perform due diligence on projects and pledge their support.
The Civic Tech Exchange will create an efficient marketplace to allocate eyeballs and funding in the growing civic tech sector. We believe the results will be agile experimentation with new methods and technologies, and an smoother path to sustainability for projects that demonstrate real-world impact. An early prototype of what we’re working in collaboration with our friends at the Better Democracy Portal can be found here.”

Brand New Congress Recruits Congressional candidates to run as Republicans in Red districts. Many of the same principles as Justice Democrats.
MAD DOG PAC “Mad Dog PAC was founded in December, 2017 by Chairman Claude Taylor (@truefactsstated on twitter). It is a hard-hitting political advocacy organization that is taking the fight to the home districts of the worst Republican members of Congress. We are placing billboards in prominent locations, and we make no apologies for calling out sitting members for their hypocrisy, criminality, racism and dangerous support of Trump.”
