Our Purpose

OurSociety is a 501c3 non-profit with the purpose of empowering civic engagement by developing experimental solutions to some of our biggest problems.

Society is complex so OurSociety focuses on our six principles when choosing what types of experiments to undertake.

 

Breaking Financial Barriers

U.S. Politics are systemically flawed due to the amount of capital needed to run for public office. Our first experiment is a free platform for candidates running for office that empowers individuals from all economic classes to have a voice.

High Energy Democracy

Creating a highly energized and participatory democracy is necessary to create a world where legislative and societal change does not rely so heavily on crisis.

Collaborative Governance

States were designed laboratories of experimentation, but our lab equipment needs an upgrade.  Developing methods and technologies to disseminate best practices at all levels of government could improve our collective society drastically.

Collaborative Citizenry

We believe that we have more in common than we’re given credit for.  Our first experiment incorporates detailed value analytics to identify collaborative trends among Americans – allowing us to identify a more unified national direction.

Community 2.0

Community matters.  Every municipality has access to tremendous amounts of untapped potential in the perspective and engagement of their constituents.  We’re experimenting with concepts to make community more engaging and easier to be involved with.

Society as Technology

We believe that social structures such as Democracy, the Market Economy, Laws Regarding Property & Contract, Educational Institutions, and more are all types of social technology.  We view challenges from an objective lens, focusing on bringing possibilities into reality through technology and action.
