Securing Democracy with Civic Tech, ePluribus

We dream of a more secure, engaged, and unified democracy. Out of many, we are one.

ePluribus goal is to make it insanely easy for Americans to send official messages to their representatives and Unum ID to empower them to do so as verified constituents. ePluribus and Unum ID together stop bots and meddling from wreaking havoc on in our politics.

ePluribus is a civic engagement platform that addresses problem (1) by providing a suite of tools: a mobile app, Chrome extension, and embeddable widget. These tools literally put representatives in the palm of your hand, from Trump down to your Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Unum ID is a blockchain identity platform that address problem (2) with a mobile app that lets people verify their identities and share personal data with unprecedented privacy and security. Each user’s data is stored ONLY on their device; there is literally no database. Since over 1 billion people were affected by data breaches in 2018, it’s hard to overstate how important this is.
