We're in beta 😊

This is an open beta, meaning anyone and everyone can sign-up. It's also free! The features below do a pretty good job of defining our vision, but it's not all here yet. We'll be posting feature updates here and on Instagram. Have some thoughts for us? Contact us.

Take actions that matter

Petitions, form emails, and social media debates don't move the needle. Focus on actions that work:

  • Gather community endorsements
  • Publish in local media
  • Meet with your elected officials

Develop genuine relationships with elected officials

By The People provides the tools for you and your supporters to build long-term, productive relationships with elected officials. You can be confident you have their attention when it matters most.

  • Learn their concerns, then address them
  • Celebrate their impact

Grow your community,
amplify your story

Democracy is social, but advocacy tools often silo groups and ideas. By The People provides an accessible way for organizations and people to support each other and do what counts: pass policy.

  • Message your advocates
  • Collaborate across organizations

Verified users only

With verified identities, officials know they're interacting with their constituents and can understand what they really think. Verified identities also help us ensure By The People is a safe place for everyone — that means no harassment or bad actors.

    It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us...  that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
    -- President Abraham Lincoln | November 18, 1863
