Stand is a passion project inspired by recent events in American politics and social discourse. Taking aim at the supposed impenetrable separation between ordinary people and the machinery of government, it operates on the premise that elected officials are only motivated by the needs and values of their constituents to the extent that they remain connected to the voices of the individuals they’re entrusted to represent.
Democracy withers and questionable interests take root in the vacuum left by the people’s silence – yet the average citizen doesn’t have the luxury of speaking their mind at town halls or in their senator’s office. Enter Stand, an app that makes it dead simple to contact representatives on a routine basis in direct reaction to items in your news feed. Be heard on the issues you care about most and help shape the social narrative in real-time, as it evolves.
