About


  • We believe progressive organizations and the campaigns they run are critical to any vibrant democracy. Unfortunately, they often have limited resources with which to build and sustain a movement. Even well-staffed organizations know it takes extra support to scale their efforts and achieve lasting change.

  • “Distributed organizing” helps campaigners grow their movement by empowering a network of committed volunteers to lead their own groups and drive action. In recent years, the strategy has become increasingly popular, and for good reason. In the US, the Bernie Sanders 2016 primary campaign has become the poster child for what can be achieved via grassroots, volunteer-led action.

  • In Australia, leading grassroots campaigners have embraced distributed organizing strategies. We have worked with GetUp!, the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Victorian Greens and #StopAdani to develop custom digital solutions that help them maximise their impact by empowering volunteers.

  • Having seen the incredible power these digital tools can have in supporting distributed organizing, we decided to create SupporterBase, a NationBuilder integration for progressives. It gives volunteer leaders the tools they need to find, start and run local groups and, crucially, it makes those tools easy to use. It gives professional organizers the oversight they need, while protecting supporter and volunteer data.

  • It helps supporters find nearby action groups, sign up to join, contact local leaders, RSVP to upcoming events or even start the process of creating their own group.

  • It allows approved volunteers to step up as local leaders, giving them the ability to keep in touch with local group members via email, SMS and phone calls, create new events, manage RSVPs, track attendance and filter supporters according to customizable levels of engagement.

  • Finally, it allows you, the lead organizers, to see what is going on across your entire network of local groups. You can visualize progress, reward local leaders and support others to engage within your volunteer network where it is needed most.
