Why is this important?

Social media has radically redefined activism. Vact offers the space for young people to be civically engaged in the political and social issue they are passionate about. The mobile app connects students with political organizations, nonprofits and campaigns across the country.

I led the design team in creating the MVP of Vact up to the stage of handover to Nebel Technologies for development.

Helping users prioritize

To avoid overwhelm, users choose up to 3 interests to curate their feed of actions. Having a limit on interests helps focus the user's actions and keep them in control while using Vact.

Home Feed

The curated feed is the home screen of Vact. Users can post action items to Vact's home page which is sent to administrators to be approve in live-time before it is posted to the feed. A filter pop-up is embed next to the search bar to ease discoverability of the action types that users are comfortable with.
