Democracy.io – Write Your Representative
Failure to effectively reach members of Congress has disastrous consequences. Studies show that politicians fundamentally misconceive their constituents’ views, making it harder for them to represent us in the lawmaking process. That’s why they built Democracy.io: a new tool to put you in touch with your members of Congress—with as few clicks as possible. They make it possible for you to email your two senators and representative through a single website. You submit one message—not three different messages on three different forms on three different websites. Some key features: a) All your senators and representatives on one website; b) Say whatever you want. Many activism platforms want you to send a pre-written message about a specific topic. They let you tell Congress exactly what’s on your mind; and c) Free software. All their code is licensed under the AGPL, which means people can create new versions with different features and continue to improve on our original idea.
