Grassroots campaigns are all about organization and attention. Which is why tech matters. Come develop the next generation of grassroots political organizing tools to help Bernie reach new voters, motivate and coordinate volunteers, and crunch the mountains of national data.
How can we make sure Bernie’s volunteers are constantly and consistently engaged with the most up to date information from the campaign?
Bernie’s average donation of $27 has become national lore. How can we make sure donations keep coming through as smoothly and as easily as possible?
How can we most efficiently and effectively get voters not just to polling stations, but upcoming speeches, town halls and rallies?
