Forget fliers. Create an assembly and rally support from anywhere in the US. Getting noticed has never been easier.
Put your money where your mouth is. Fund assemblies happening anywhere in the US. Supporting the causes you care about is now simpler than ever.
Participate in change. Join an assembly near you. Stand for something you believe in, or advocate for someone who can't.
We are an app that enables the 99% to crowd fund and crowdsource their representation. Money is a constitutionally protected form of free speech. Large corporations can take advantage of this in a way that the average person cannot. Corporations use this fact, paying lobbyists and actors to represent their ideas to politicians and create fake grass roots support, to great effect.
The loudest form of free speech we have is protesting but this is always very costly - the time cost required to participate, organize and related efforts come at a financial loss. This is noble, but for many people with 40-hour work weeks it is also unreasonable. These people necessarily opt out of assembling, weakening our strongest voice.
We provide a platform for crowd funding representation. Anyone can launch an assembly, anyone can provide funding, and anyone can act as a representative for compensation. UpVoice creates a line of support from people who don't have time to represent themselves, to people who have the time but not the means. We hope to inspire action and fuel public assembly in a way that has never been seen, strengthening our most powerful voice.
We want to give power back to anyone who has ever felt their voice limited by a lack of funding. If the idea of funded public assembly makes you uneasy, that's normal. It's an odd concept, but it already exists. Consider this: we pay others to watch our children because our time is very valuable – if we’re willing to pay others to watch our children, having others represent us thousands of miles away in the centers of power in a visible way cannot be controversial. We hope that our crowd funding model will even the playing field.Read more

You have a First Amendment right to free speech and assembly. The First Amendment unfortunately does not guarantee you the time to assemble - add a job, a mortgage and living paycheck to paycheck as most Americans do, and your right to free speech and assembly mean nothing. The same way your employer pays large sums of money to be heard in the halls of power, you can now put your money to work to ask your government for redress in a visible way.
We accept Visa and Mastercard.
There are those who suggest that giving up your job, mortgage, healthcare, livelihood is a requirement for assembling. They will tell you that you are only allowed to ask your government to change at a personal loss to you, putting your family, job, and health on the line. "The assembly is not real if you're not losing your job!" They ignore those of us who have anti-assembling clauses in our work contracts. Those of us who have been forced to trade our rights to assemble for a paycheck to feed our children. We believe asking anyone to forgo their livelihood when asking their government for change is immoral. We believe the free market of ideas should be accessible to the entire populace through representative assemblers. Corporations have no shame when they pool their money and resources together to effectively influence your elected representatives. Why should you?
Yes. Our Constitution guarantees us the freedom of speech and the right to assemble as rights that cannot be taken away. The United States Supreme Court has further affirmed that spending money is equivalent to free speech. We provide an organized way to give citizen's priorities physical visibility. Anyone can create an assembly. Anyone can fund an assembly. Anyone can participate to represent your priorities in a publicly visible way.
