Don't just read, act.
With everything happening in the world today, it is more important than ever to make use of the news you consume by engaging in political action. That’s why we have created a tool for Chrome that encourages engagement in the political process. The Read, Act extension tracks the amount of time you spend reading about politics and periodically requests that you apply what you’ve learned by taking a stand on something important to you. Our hope is that by providing consistent reminders and helpful suggestions, we can help you make your voice heard.
How it works
Set your pace
Engage at the speed you are comfortable with, and set more ambitious goals for engagement as you gain experience.
Pick your issues
Take part in addressing the pressing concerns of the moment, or stick with the topics that are most important to you.
Choose your actions
Participate however you see fit, and take advantage of resources for doing everything from donating to protesting.
Track your reading
Watch for the comma in the corner to turn red, white, and blue when the extension thinks you are reading about politics.
Each time you hit your personal news-reading limit, get reminded to channel the information you've gained into action.
Click the comma to see the countdown to your next reminder, or to get credit for actions you've taken in the meantime.
