standing up for good people
The team at Do Gooder made the app to support the work of progressive advocates. We believe in the power of people to create a fairer, more equitable world, through progressive actions.
Do Gooder is for activists who are campaigning for progressive issues. If you find something you like then we recommend you try one of the politics agnostic platforms, we're for the good people exclusively.
What is a progressive advocate?
A progressive advocate can be a single person or a even a whole organization that is dedicated to lobbying on behalf of issues and causes that uphold the dignity and common rights of people.
Do Gooder has created a guideline for what we consider to be progressive issues.
