    Brigade is building the world’s first voter network to connect voters to their representatives, one another and the grassroots campaigns that best reflect their values. We believe that voters, not donors, should be the true source of power in our democracy, but that all too often their voices are crowded out by better funded and better organized interest groups. Our platform gives ordinary people the tools they need to get organized and build real political power through through collective issue advocacy and voting. Brigade builds innovative peer-to-peer organizing tools and connects directly to the voter file to verify voter identity.

    The company is backed by Silicon Valley heavyweights Sean Parker, Marc Benioff and Ron Conway and is headquartered in San Francisco. Brigade is available on iOS, Android and Web.
