Hi, we’re Action Network

We believe that teams fighting for progressive change need powerful, flexible tools to win on the issues that will build a more just and equitable world for all of us.

About us

Action Network tools are made for—and with—teams at people-powered organizations that want to build broad support and foster deeper relationships with supporters. Our tools are made to help you capture a moment, rally supporters to your cause, and sustain relationships with activists to build a stronger organization with lasting impacts.

Since launching in 2012, Action Network tools have helped the Women’s March mobilize huge rallies across the globe, helped the DNC raised millions for candidates and organizations, and much more.

The Action Builder toolset, launched in 2019, helps dozens of unions and progressive organizations empower leaders and build strong organizing campaigns.

How we’re different

We build our tools through a unique cooperative development model, sharing ownership of our development roadmap with our core Development Partners, who determine what we build and when we build it.

The result: Tools that are more powerful and easier to use for every organization in the progressive movement — from frontline, grassroots organizations to established, federated organizations.
