Our Values

Stratos supports progressive candidates and causes through civic engagement, community building, and ethical data use.

Civic engagement

Infrequent voters receive less attention from campaigns, vote less, and do not hear from future campaigns.

Stratos seeks to break this cycle by engaging infrequent and non-voters through their voting friends.

Community building

Online disinformation, microtargeted ads, and foreign interference divide people against each other.

Stratos uses technology to reveal and strengthen our connections to each other, and encourage genuine conversations outside our newsfeeds.

Data ethics

When volunteers share their contact information with Stratos, we reciprocate with our data to help them better understand and mobilize their own social networks.

Stratos aims for transparency in what data we collect and share, and offers easy ways for users to delete their data from Stratos at any time.
