Do Something That Matters.

Resistance Labs is the leading peer-to-peer text political consultancy supporting Democrats nationwide.  Our clients span both establishment and movement efforts, from senior Democratic Congressional leadership to organizations like Black Voters Matter.  We leverage technology and our army of passionate, remote volunteers to help progressives run and win everywhere and we were an important tool used in many of the critical wins of 2018’s midterm elections.

 

Resistance Labs focuses on finding new ways to use technology to achieve tangible outcomes in areas like voter registration, candidate recruitment, and elections.  We’re able to rapidly incubate ideas, train volunteers, and deploy teams for our Democratic clients. Our projects focus on experimenting and sharing learnings to help progressives best optimize their growth and communications strategies.

 

As a social enterprise, profits from our work fund our mission: to prevent fascism and rebuild the Democratic Party from the ground up. To that end, we have incubated additional efforts in the progressive toolkit such as Rapid Resist, supporting progressives in rural areas, and Contest Every Race, an effort to put a Democrat up against every uncontested Republican seat in the country.
