Weclome To Interactivist
Welcome to Interactiv.ist. The idea for interactiv.ist came out of March On Harrisburg, a volunteer citizen lobbyist and direct action community looking to pass three good governance bills. Our goal at March On Harrisburg is to make public all the best practices and resources we have discovered in the process of our own organizing. If you are looking to create your own MARCH ON group or other community organizing group we’ve created this white label solution that you can establish your web presence quickly. These tools are powerful, and they aren’t always super simple to use. It will help to have either an open mind ready to learn new things, or find a techie/web developer who will help you set up your site pro-bono.
You have two options if you’re interested in getting started using the Interactiv.ist platform. Interactiv.ist is built on WordPress and uses the Divi Builder. It also has a handful of premium plug-ins developed by WPMUDEV which can help you keep in contact with your organizations members. If you are looking for a full hosted and maintained solution, contact me at email@example.com to find out more. Pricing is based entirely on the cost of hosting and and software. If you want to host it yourself, send me an email and I can give you recommendations on plugins and other tools we used for Interactiv.ist and MarchonHarrisburg.org.
You can start by using the templates that we’ve created for various pages.
In order to make our movement as “open source” as possible on the web (we do used closed-source plug-ins and resources) we have made our web development platform available for all and attempted to make it as easy as possible for you to use it. We have posted tutorials for how to use each part of the site as well as some rudimentary tutorials on how to edit pictures, with recommendations for free tools you can use.

Who Uses InterActivist?
We use a white label version of InterActivist for our site. It’s fantastic. The builder is intuitive and easy to use. I no longer have to maintain the whole site, it’s easy enough to teach other and now more people are getting involved in maintaining the site. Great solution for small activist organizations looking to build an online movement.Sean Leber
