What is Team America?

Team America is your super power to monitor and shape legislation with a text.

How does it work?

  1. You receive an alert (via text message or Facebook Messenger) when your representatives interact with legislation that impacts you.
  2. Don’t know how to feel? Each alert is paired with recommendations from our curated network of Charity Navigator 4☆ nonprofits.
  3. We’ll help compose your thoughts and then deliver the message to yours reps securely via CWCor as a custom postcard.

We’re combining a smarter way of thinking (strategizing not reacting) with a better approach to acting (direct engagement at scale, using technology).

Why should I pay?

TL;DR: Independence and privacy.

The founding principle of Team America is to empower you to come to your own conclusions outside the influence of special interests. That means all of our operational costs are covered by our members. We will never use dark money to power Team America.

Can I actually make an impact?

To make your action as effective as possible:

  • We work as far upstream in the bill-making process as possible to make sure your voice is never lost in a flood of people panic-calling Congress the day of a vote.

  • Your representatives get your messages! We’re registered with the official Communicating With Congress advocacy service to ensure every message securely reaches the desks of your reps.

Wait, so are you MAGA or #RESIST?

Neither!

Thanks to our network of nonprofits who span the spectrum of causes and perspectives, your Team bot doesn't care if an issue is red or blue.

Though, if you think we’re drifting, call us out!

Then who's backing this?

Unfortunately George Soros and the Koch Brothers never took our calls, we’re paying our own way with a mix of patriotism and stardust.

How are you using A.I.?

Team America’s AI is built on the IBM Watson platform to crunch the data behind policy recommendations and power our chatbot.

How much of my membership goes to non-profits? Is that tax-deductible?

By the end of 2017 our goals are to:

  • Donate 50% of our ongoing quarterly profit back to the network

  • Have donation receipts available for all members

How do you use my data?

All personal data you provide is encrypted and will not be shared with others without your explicit consent.

Messages to Congress are securely delivered via the government's official Communicating With Congress (CWC) service.

Here is our full privacy policy. If you have any questions or concerns let us know.

I'm having trouble talking to my bot.

The Team America bots are constantly learning and improving as they interact with more people and see more legislation. With that being said, like someone learning a new language, sometimes they get confused or lost.

If your bot is down for maintenance you can always interact with recently featured bills on your dashboard.

If your bot is having trouble understanding you, even when you speak in simple, direct phrases, don't hesitate to click the ‘Ask a Human’ button at the bottom of the page and we’ll jump into chat as soon as we can.

Can I talk to a human?

We’re available on Twitter, Facebook, and email.
