Nick Clark started Athen Hill as a hobby project, processing, analyzing, and mapping the Vermont voter checklist one month at a time. It's potential to help progressive candidates get elected, and the need for a wider range of features, quickly became apparent.
The mission of Athen Hill is to help progressives organize and win elected office so that we, as a society, are better equipped to fight for climate security. The intention is to provide the platform to all progressives regardless of income while following a public radio/television model and encouraging monthly support from those who can afford it.
Nick is currently working on the project part time with the goal of improving its usability in Vermont and expanding its range to other states.
