Current social media can energize us around an issue but often ends up being all talk. WokeUp connects you with resources and local collaborators to plug in and take meaningful action.
VISION & MISSION
Empower citizens to transform their communities through meaningful, effective civic engagement and reclaim democracy.
Develop the necessary political infrastructure for the 21st century through a virtuous social network, providing technology tools and resources for effective activism. Encourage the smallest acts of justice and kindness, with an understanding that the power of personal connection can shape our world. Make civic involvement simple, fun and an enduring American value.
Social media can be a tool to effect meaningful action.
Volunteer time is as valuable a resource as donor dollars.
Protests and resistance are losing their effectiveness.
The American renaissance will begin at the community level, not in Washington.
When the right people get connected, change happens.
WokeUp is an elegant experiment to test these assumptions.
