September is Civic Awareness Month and the perfect time to go from informed to engaged.

Today, the EMPOWRD technology platform launched the EMPOWRD App nationally creating a solution for everyday citizens to navigate the civic engagement experience, by placing democracy in the palm of their hand. Americans want to get involved in their community and support and advocate for issues that are most important to them. No platform brings all participants together in one place with the resources needed to effectively participate in Democracy. EMPOWRD has created a solution: Simplify Civic Engagement for Americans.

September is Civic Awareness Month and the perfect time to go from informed to engaged. To recognize and inspire action this month, EMPOWRD has launched a social media campaign featuring Fox Sports TV host, Mike Hill, NFL legend, Michael Vick, Philadelphia 76ers Mike Scott and more sharing what “Civic Duty” means to them, and how everyone can get engaged by getting EMPOWRD. Everyone can join the campaign by going to EMPOWRD.com to create their own image.

Horace Douglas Williams II, Founder and Managing Director of EMPOWRD, created the EMPOWRD technology platform in January of 2015 based on the simple premise that our political system is too complex for the average American to actively and effectively participate, and therefore must be simplified, especially at the most local levels of government.

A first of its kind, user-friendly mobile app, EMPOWRD utilizes political data and user preferences to make civic engagement and advocacy mobilization easy, personal, and accessible for all people. Download the app, and receive a customized list of your elected leaders complete with “click to contact” capability; follow elected leaders, influencers, and organizations to stay informed on key issues and opportunities to take action. Unique features give the user the power to search for elected officials by name, jurisdiction, or issue, monitor term dates and election dates of leaders nationwide, email leaders on policy, join an influencer from advocacy groups to engagement events such as townhalls and marches, and follow an issue to support the policies they care most about. EMPOWRD’s tech platform also includes EMPOWRD Engage App allowing users and influencers to mobilize followers, and the desktop Civic Advocacy Platform allowing advocacy groups to mobilize, analyze, and acquire new supporters by managing campaigns. Empowering advocates like never before.

EMPOWRD App is available for Android in the Google Play Store and IOS / Apple App Store.
