THE STORY

JAN. 26, 2018

THE BEGINNING

In 2018, founder Hayley Childress joined a justice program that took her to New Zealand, Thailand and Cambodia. Everything was left behind for first hand experience with various human rights issues, from the problems facing youth to the injustice against the elderly.

THE IDEA

While in Bangkok, Thailand, the idea for the app is born.  Leaders of nonprofits  all over the world were sharing their universal frustration of our current media platforms. In a world that just keeps getting busier, how could we truly connect as citizens, nonprofits, and ethical businesses without all of the added frustrations of oppressive algorithms? The answer: an app specifically for activism that focuses on awareness, action and community.
