Poll Town is a public opinion marketplace where you can discover what people are thinking. Our mission is to invigorate democracy by giving citizens a voice on important issues. By making it simple and fast for people to participate, we open up a whole new level of collaboration and civic action. The first version of our platform was launched in 2013 as Townhall Social, a Facebook app with a single-question survey that could be easily shared across social media. Our focus has always been to solve the problem of low participation in government outreach. Over the following years we helped over 80 government and community organizations in North America, Africa, Asia, and Australasia reach and engage people in decisions that impact them.
Rapid Resist recruits activists fighting the worst of Donald Trump's agenda and encourages them to run for office. We were the largest peer texting operation in the US in 2017. Rapid Resist supports front-lines progressive leaders in rural and conservative areas. We do so to protect those that are most at risk and tangibly improve the lives of those left out of economic progress. We are critical infrastructure that amplifies activist leaders’ voices, creates new connections for them, and helps the progressive movement build power in underserved areas.

APEN holds this vision of environmental justice for all people. Our work focuses on Asian and Pacific Islander communities.
