Welcome to the centralized platform for political activism.
Gather is a mobile application for civic organizing and political activism. We’re taking every component of the recent progressive momentum – the grassroots groups, events, meetings, rallies, calls to action – and centralizing them in one digital application, making it easier than ever before to be an activist for change.
Gather is working with March for Our Lives Chicago to demand gun reform from our lawmakers. We are creating a force of activists to take action before and after the March to promote the event and effect change on this issue.
Why is this important?
Political participation is critical for a well-functioning civic society. It is our collective responsibility to hold our representatives accountable for their actions and ensure that they make policy decisions with the best interests of their constituents in mind. When we neglect our civic duties, injustices creep into the political sphere, manifesting in division, disenfranchisement, and inequity.
We believe political activism needs to be made easier - both for organizations and individuals - if we are going to eliminate the numerous social injustices that plague our political system and society at large.
Why limit yourself to desktop activism when you can 'gather' with thousands of passionate activists committed to the same social and political reforms you care about?
We are capable of so much more than a 'like' and a 'share', and the current political climate requires us to face this challenge.
Gather makes it easier than ever before to identify issues that matter to you, join groups working to advance causes you care about, and organize or participate in civic engagements to catalyze meaningful reform across each level of government. It's time to Gather.

There's power in numbers. Find groups fighting for the causes you care about, or form a community of activists to organize around issues that are important to all of you.

Civic organizing has never been this easy.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
We're bringing progressive political organizations, events, and actions to college campuses.
We can turn universities into invaluable components for sustaining the progressive momentum developed over the past year. Gather is the first digital platform to centralize all progressive political opportunities in one place, and we've partnered with students who serve as Campus Gather Organizers (CGOs) on college campuses to connect students to these opportunities.
Are you part of a civic organization, political campaign, or company interested in partnering with Gather? We'd love to hear from you.
You can use these images as social cover photos, banners, or promotional content to engage friends, family, or fellow students in the progressive movement. CGOs will pass out laptop stickers with these designs on their respective campuses.
