LobbyForMe Builds Platform for Contacting Government Reps

LobbyForMe is a new tool that helps the public have a voice in the U.S. government by creating campaigns for contacting representatives. According to Todd O’Brien, the site’s co-founder:

Following the 2016 presidential election, one thing became clear to me—Americans of all political stripes don’t feel represented by their government. That’s why I, along with co-founder Ben Koren, created LobbyForMe, an online platform that makes it easy for activists to create, share, and track campaigns on any political issue or government vote. 

Activists simply go to where they can create a campaign and share it via social media. Supporters can then enter their address to locate and send a message to their elected representative with the push of a button. The platform also provides powerful analytics about the campaign reach and size—information activists and the media can leverage to hold politicians accountable on the issues that matter to their constituents.
