How Nonprofit, Cooperative Tech Can Help Us Win Up and Down the Ballot

How Nonprofit, Cooperative Tech Can Help Us Win Up and Down the Ballot

Session Type(s): Panel

While the progressive tech ecosystem has traditionally been dominated by a for-profit, vendor-based model of tech development, an alternative model has emerged that holds enormous potential to close the knowledge and resource gap for down-ballot campaigns in 2020. By embracing a nonprofit, cooperative model of tech development, Action Network, the DNC, ActBlue and others are working to deliver the tools necessary for local and state-level campaigns to run robust email fundraising campaigns to elect progressives up and down the ballot.
