Our story

CEO & Founder,

Jordan Hewson

Often when we read the news, we feel compelled to do something but we don’t know where to start. That’s why we started Speakable PBC, a technology company on a mission to connect people to the power of their civic voices.

Our team is building products that make taking action in support of the causes you care about a better, faster and easier experience.

Our first product, Action Button, empowers readers to impact news stories that inspire them—whether by donating, signing a petition or emailing a policymaker. Our users can do more than read headlines, they can change headlines.
