The Progressive's Guide to Saving Democracy is a site connecting progressives to causes and candidates to effectively focus their energy and resources. While canvassing for progressive candidates in Southern California leading up to the 2018 midterm elections, I noticed my friends and family often didn't know how to get involved themselves. So I decided to demolish that barrier to entry just like the Vogons demolished the Earth.

Written in HTML with Handlebars and Javascript with jQuery, the Progressive's Guide gently leads the user through a survey to gauge their demographics and interests, and provides a list of action items customized to the user built with the open-source NeDB database library. The Progressive's Guide runs on a Node server built with Express and hosted on Heroku.
