Mission Statement

Open Progress, a 501 (c)4 works to unlock the power of digital human connection for progressive change in America. Be it at the ballot box, in legislative chambers big and small, or on the stoops, sidewalks, and streets of our neighborhoods, humans in conversation with one another - in person, in-text message, and on social media - will bring about the change we seek. We aim to harness this interconnected power of all our human connections.


The Open Progress Text Troop is a diverse community of committed volunteers from across the country who are engaging in issue-focused conversations with voters via person-to-person text messages. Here’s some of the work we do:

  • Encourage citizens across the country, whether English or Spanish-speaking, to register to vote

  • Persuade and identify their support for our causes and candidates

  • Help voters find their polling locations

Our volunteers are trained by the best in order to create rich conversations with a better-informed electorate. Worried you don’t have time? Even just 2 hours a week will allow you reach thousands of people.

Texting does not use your cell phone or your personal phone number.
We text from our web browser based platform that is accessible by PC or Mobile

It's fun and can be done in my free time no matter what time of day it is. It's nice to have the morning for errands and the afternoon to text. There is also different campaigns and I am learning so much because of it.
