The tool we are developing aims to bring citizens closer to their elected representatives. It empowers users to contact Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) efficiently and with a low entry barrier. The software takes the burden away from users to understand the EU and which MEPs are best to contact on a particular issue. It also knows how to contact them, and even allows the user to call them free of charge.
DearMEP is being developed as a white label solution that can be applied to any EU level decision that has to be voted upon in the plenary of the European Parliament. NGOs that campaign around an EU decision can use the software to mobilize the public efficiently with the goal to influence particular plenary votes.
Currently, the DearMEP software is tailored to address the whole European Parliament and to be used by citizens from all EU countries to contact MEPs from their countries. In this presentation, we would like to show you the current development state of this tool. We are planning to use DearMEP in the ongoing campaign against the chat control proposal. After that legislative file has concluded, we will release the software under the AGPL free software licence. During the CCCamp we will provide access to the current beta.
We would love to hear your feedback. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
