Personal stories and opinions matter to Congress, but the millions of phone calls and emails they receive just aren't manageable. POPVOX does the work of verifying, sorting, and counting opinions and then delivering them in a structured format that Congress can use immediately. It’s the only website of its kind—and it’s nonpartisan.
The POPVOX platform empowers individuals to easily weigh in on the bills pending before Congress. For organizations and trade associations, POPVOX provides a single place to publicly display measurable grassroots outcomes. POPVOX gives members of Congress and their staff real-time analytics of public sentiment. With two clicks, they can see exactly how their constituents feel about any bill, at any time—and what other Congressional offices are hearing. The media loves POPVOX because, for the first time, there is an independent metric of what people are actually telling Congress, instead of what the press releases from organizations are saying about the people.
“Call your Member of Congress.” “Write your Senator.” Inboxes are full of calls to action generated by the $20 billion advocacy industry that exists to influence the decisions of legislators. With nearly half a billion messages bombarding Congress each year and untold tweets, petitions, and Facebook messages—the sheer volume makes it far less likely that messages are getting through... until POPVOX.
The keys to POPVOX are structure and transparency.
POPVOX is made up of tools for citizens, Congress, and advocates.
The first product, 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 Pro widgets, enabling their networks to write Congress through embedded POPVOX tools, and displaying dynamic legislative content. For organizations, our Pro tools bring a level of sophistication to their grassroots campaigns, and allow them to monitor how their campaign is progressing in real time.
POPVOXNation will allow individuals to manage and maintain online civic profiles, build their civic reputation, engage friends and have meaningful impact in the legislative process.
User profiles, tailored updates, “following” capabilities, and invitation systems will give users strategic tools to conduct their own powerful grassroots advocacy. Two out of three POPVOX users say they “want to be more strategic about getting friends/networks to take action on a bill." This natural extension of POPVOX will put the power of social organizing within the reach of individuals.
As a part of the civic profile development, POPVOX will also make available an open-authorization API to enable organizations, government agencies, and companies to allow user sign-in with POPVOX.
POPVOX was founded to empower people, amplify their voice in Congress, and change the world.
The company's methods for delivering messages to Congress are the best in the market—but POPVOX is much more than a software company. POPVOX is building the world’s “Civic Network” -- infrastructure for advocacy and civil society.
The POPVOX team understands that in the civic space, user trust is the most important business asset, and has created a pioneering "what we know about you" privacy report.
POPVOX is already playing a key role in changing the way citizens communicate with government—and each other—on important issues all over the world.
