Take Action News (#TAN) is a nonpartisan, independent digital news service dedicated to engaging the public with news and information about how our government works, along with tools for readers to get involved in government decision-making processes. We want to empower citizens to Take Action.
We believe millions of citizens want more: understandable information; information about how government decisions will affect them; and most importantly, information on how they can influence the outcomes.
We combine original, non-partisan reporting and ongoing curation of the best government coverage across the web with tools to act.
Take Action News is building a platform and dashboard that will allow users to Take Action in one easy step: Read or watch our stories, then click through to the decision-makers in Congress and the federal government. Get your views across to local media. Or find like-minded citizens.
#TAN is integrated through an eco-system of traditional media such as Cable and Radio, with exclusive digital channels including a state-of-the-art website, multiple social media networks and partner Internet, cable and broadcast platforms.
Take Action News is powered by a team of well-respected experts who can explain succinctly, clearly, and without political bias complex legislative and administrative processes and developments.
We have your government surrounded.
