Our team shares a vision of an abundant democratic culture in which people are confident in their capacity to self-organise.
Our aim is to empower people to directly resist all forms of oppression, form more resilient and autonomous communities, and organise themselves at ever larger scales.
We place a strong focus on building trust and shared understanding with the activists we work with. We listen to their needs, work out we could augment their organisational capacity and directly co-design tools in collaboration with them.
We work in agile sprints: short bursts of focused activity where we follow a build-measure-learn cycle. This enables us to iterate quickly and efficiently, ensuring that we meet real needs without wasting resources on unnecessary features.
We have a core team of four members, whose skillset includes political organising, strategy, software engineering, user research, project management, graphic and digital product design.
We all have frontline experience in grassroots organising and an extensive practical and theoretical track record of advancing political change.
