WHO WE ARE:
ActBlue is a nonprofit that builds tech and infrastructure for Democratic campaigns, progressive-aligned causes, and people trying to make an impact in order to fuel long-term, people-powered change.

Each and every one of us, from the political activists to the tech innovators to the customer service pros, is fully committed to our mission.
