Empowering the next generation of civic leaders, because everyone should be
able to understand and take action on the issues that impact their lives.
Countable began in 2014 with this simple mission: give people a voice in government. Just four people in my living room, a handful of legislative summaries, and a Yea / Nay button later, we launched the first iteration of Countable.
Today, Countable has become a top-ranked mobile application in the Apple App store, surfacing nonpartisan summaries of legislation and political news, and making that content actionable with a suite of digital products. We've helped folks share their opinions with lawmakers, and we've bolstered innovative and socially responsible causes to power civic education and action of their own. A 21st century solution to the rancor and political-deafness of American debate, and an answer to the dissolution of civic engagement, Countable now empowers anyone to learn and engage with our democracy.
On Countable, an idea is never stagnant. A proposal never falls flat. We help turn ideas into actions, and proposals into policy. Countable communities are formed by more than just friendship or work. They’re built on shared values, a yearning to engage with government, and a passion for critical civic discourse. When these communities are provided the facts they need to form genuine opinions, and armed with the technology to take action, movements are built overnight.
Join us, and power your movement today.
