Our Story

We're building a web app that will make it easy for people to volunteer for their favorite political campaigns, nonprofits, and advocacy organizations - from home. Just like school and work have become accessible from anywhere, we believe volunteering should be, too. It has a communications tool that's as easy to use as social media to bring volunteers and organizers together, no matter where they are; and an onboarding system to get new volunteers set up as quickly and easily as possible.
Our Ambition

Shire will become the operating system for political campaigns and volunteer organizations everywhere. We strive to be in every progressive/Democratic political campaign in the 2024 cycle (though this is, of course, not guaranteed). We will build connections and an entire ecosystem of political technology, enabling engineers to build on top of Shire to create new, innovative tools and deeply integrate existing ones.
