A few weeks ago the one-thousandth person downloaded Voices (I know, I’m kinda slow with the blog posts). That’s exciting for a bunch of reasons. It means there’s a thousand people who have easy access to their elected officials. It means there’s a thousand people who can support the groups and causes they care about. It means there’s a thousand people who can change their community for the better. The real value of Voices comes from people taking action together. Individuals are more effective at influencing policy when they act together, in groups. And as the Voices community continues to grow, it will become more effective in influencing change. It’s always been our belief that people want to improve their communities, but that they don’t always have the time or info they need to do so. Growth like this is an exciting first step in validating that belief. If you’re not one of those thousand people, head over here to download the app and send us some feedback! We love hearing from people who want to improve their community.
