CivicActions' team of over 35 people in seven time zones provides strategic consulting, technology planning, visual and information design, quality assurance and web solutions for content management, on-line/off-line communities, constituent relationship management, e-advocacy, e-canvass and on-line fundraising tools. Our services empower distributed networks to protect the environment, advance peace, improve public health, promote education, champion social and economic justice and increase human potential.

The CivicActions team consists of experts practicing in strategic consulting, information architecture, user experience design and testing, systems engineering, visual design, organizing, quality assurance, and project management. CivicActions team members live where they want, have a flexible work schedule, and work for clients they are passionate about. This flexibility tends to attract "Renaissance" men and women: people who -- in addition to their passion for technology -- are also literacy activists, Appalachian songwriters, personal transformation coaches, organic farmers, and programmers with degrees in art and political science. We meet at least three times each year for full team retreats in various places (recently in New Orleans, Barcelona, Playa Del Carmen (MEX) and Sonoma) and have regular engineering and project team retreats and sprints.

CivicActioners actively engage their communities and bring their interdisciplinary approaches into their work with technology. "Thinking outside the box" -- a phrase corporations use to encourage innovation -- is not something we try to do. We live it.
