A few months ago, Ben Koren and his friend Todd began researching where they could have the most impact on improving our changing society. They learned that one of the most effective ways to influence policy is to have lots of people call their representatives together. They also realized that it’s hard to make that activist unity happen. To better unify activists, Ben and Todd built LobbyForMe.org.
LobbyForMe is a free online tool that allows you to create and share your own “call-your-reps” campaigns in just a few minutes. LobbyForMe creators took the best parts of online petitions – ease, transparency, empowering activists, etc. – and combined them with much higher-impact actions, such as direct calls and messages to representatives to create an effective citizen’s lobby platform. In this manner, LobbyForMe dynamically mobilizes people through electronic media communication that can leverage lawmakers and influencers towards responsive policies and results.
Observe the lobby platform. See where you can impact change with LobbyForMe.org.
