MoveOn is a people-powered force for progress. We wield independent political power by bringing millions together to take action to create a country with a place of honor and dignity for everyone—where all are welcome, we take care of one another, and where everyone is set up to thrive.

For more than a generation, MoveOn has been a bulwark against the radical right and has channeled millions of voices to end wars, protect democracy, and advance justice for all. We’ve built political power for progressive change through mobilizing the left to Democrats so that we can advance our vision of an America for all.

MoveOn is the largest multi-issue digital first political campaigning organization in the country. We drive rapid-response campaigns at scale on a multitude of key issues at high-impact moments while building sustainable campaigns that resonate and grow over time. Whether its democracy, health care, foreign policy, economic justice, immigration or otherwise, MoveOn provides our members with timely ways to take action for change.

The MoveOn Merch Team is responsible for the creation of beautiful, powerful, and highly desirable pieces of MoveOn-branded merch (stickers, pins, apparel, and more) that can be offered to MoveOn members and potential MoveOn members for free or for a donation to help fund MoveOn’s vital work. MoveOn is heavily invested in the team’s growth, and believes that recognizable merchandise can help spread MoveOn’s brand awareness and promote our core campaigning issues.
