ePluribus is out to fix politics on Facebook. Today, when people post their political opinions, they reach their friends but have no real impact. Facebook is an echo chamber of political debate, where even the most vocal advocates barely move the needle.
ePluribus allows you to post to your friends and send that post as an official message to your representatives without ever leaving Facebook. It's a seamless integration that allows you to speak your mind and actually make a difference.
ePluribus is the world's first civic network. A civic network is like a social network but with a crucial difference: it establishes unique identity. Just as a bank ensures that each account is associated with a unique person, ePluribus ensures that each message to a representative comes from a single individual. In doing so, it helps representatives process and understand the huge volume of messages they receive and helps people like you be heard.
ePluribus is nonpartisan and for all levels of government — federal, state, and local.
"ePluribus" is a play on both the "e" commonly used to abbreviate "electronic" (as in eMail or eCommerce) and the unofficial motto of the United States, e pluribus unum, which is Latin for "out of many, one". You may not realize it, but this motto is all around you! Take out a one dollar bill and look at the back side.
This name captures the spirit of ePluribus: working together to make the system better, for everyone.
