1. Our team has grown.
We’ve pulled together an incredible team of leaders, donors, fundraisers, thought-leaders, content creators, digital and media experts, grassroots organizers, and researchers to help pull together the vision of a unified United States where the 70% of problem-solvers that are out there are actually HEARD, and where government, citizens, businesses, and activists work together to actually enact common-sense solutions.
2. We’ve created an ever-growing central hub for all of our activities at InThisTogetherAmerica.org
3. We’ve built an incredible partner network.
Turn on any major news outlet and you’ll feel certain that there isn’t anyone out there capable of working together. Come into our ecosystem to be exposed to the vast network of problem-solvers out there doing incredible work.

1. Providing a way for problem-solvers to easily get involved in the movement in an effective way.
This includes building processes that will help expose all of our audiences to similar organizations based on interests and abilities. Basically, we need to make sure that anyone who wants to help make the world a better place easily has the ability to figure out where their talents can best be used in the movement.
2. Connecting more problem-solvers to the incredible resources and organizations available.
This includes digital marketing and advertising – it’s where we can most effectively reach our problem-solver audience at scale.
3. Creating engaging content for problem-solvers that inspire problem-solving!
We’re connecting with thought leaders in Hollywood and online to create engaging and entertaining content that will help bring the 70% of problem-solvers together and will help us all be better problem-solvers!
4. Going to the people with our grassroots activities!
In order to save democracy, we need to change voter behavior by teaching citizens how to engage with each other in person again and breaking individuals out of their own media narrative bubbles. We are kicking off our grassroots activities in Orange County and Inland Empire California this year and through the midterm election where we are aiming to identify and pledge over 100,000 Solutions Voters in the region who can sway future elections in favor of candidates who choose problem-solving over polarization and policies that the majority 70% of voters can support.
5. Improving the effectiveness of our partner network.
As with any non-for-profit movement, there is a lot to be done and not a lot of resources to work with. This is why we’re working on a ‘Best Practices for Problem-Solver Organizations’. This resource will include strategies for working with the social media algorithm that prefers polarization over problem-solving which buries the content of these organizations in the social media space, the best methods for hosting transpartisan discussions, how to reach, engage and retain new problem-solvers, and so on.
