Grasshopr is Live!

Posted by Andrew on July 8, 2009

Grasshopr is live. A few of us have been working hard to develop this platform, which we hope will transform the way individuals and groups of all stripes and sizes interact with their government… specifically the legislative branch at the federal, state, and local level.

We created Grasshopr because the system (or lack thereof) of how constituents and their elected officials connect and communicate is badly broken. It’s broken because of issues concerning trust, unmanageability, and access. The status quo benefits a few, but for the most part, individuals, organizations, and elected officials lose.

Organizations can use Grasshopr to collaborate with their members and get them engaged in grassroots advocacy campaings. Individuals are matched to their elected officials and can communicate with them on current issues they’re following. And elected officials can connect with real constituents in a sustainable, authentic way.

There’s more on why we created Grasshopr here.

Let me know what you think, and how we can make it better!
