Using tech for good
Where we started
When Voting Isn't Enough
Money controls politics, so we started working on how you can control where your money goes.
After the 2020 election, using our 4,000 hours of political research, we downloaded all the corporate political donation data we could find. We mapped those donations to the candidates they went to and created "political impact" scores for each brand. Then we embedded those data into a chrome shopping extension, so you could start shop your values. People have quickly figured out that voting on election hasn't changed much but that voting with our dollars might change everything. If you want to shop your values visit Shoppyist.com to get their app that takes it to the next level.
