Action Network is a mission-driven organization, providing digital organizing tools to the progressive movement in the US and around the world. Our tools have powered many of the largest mobilizations of the last 5 years, like the Women’s March, Black Friday protests, the school walkouts for gun safety, groups fighting for immigrant rights, and many others working for a fairer and more just society. Some of the largest and most prominent organizations use our tools to power their activism, from traditional labor unions to the newest grassroots groups formed in the last two years. We combine traditional SaaS operations with unique cooperative development and financing structures to create a company that produces innovation that makes a real impact.

We want to continue to build a thriving not-for-profit business that reflects our progressive values, including a workplace environment that prioritizes the people who work here, and is based on a sustainable business model.
