Courage Campaign Testimony

The Testimony: Take a Stand Project was an ambitious project powered by the Courage Campaign to allow LGBT Americans and allies throughout the country to share their stories via moving videos and posts, and to connect with one another via an interactive map.

Richir Outreach worked closely with Courage to streamline and simplify the user experience, improve search functionality, and update the look and feel of the site. This is one of several projects Richir Outreach has taken on for Courage Campaign.

New Bottom Line: Move Our Money is powered by Google Spreadsheets and NationBuilder with slideshow and theme customization. The campaign helps supporters drop big banks in favor of local, more accountable, credit unions.

The site submits to and pulls data from Google, and uses javascript to display a count of how much money has been moved to community banks. Last we checked, over 60 million dollars has been reported!

Progress out of Poverty

Richir Outreach worked with Progress Out of Poverty, an initiative of the Grameen Foundation, on their Drupal 6 website and their Convio account to unify their website and email templates. We revamped their existing site and worked with Jen Simmons to develop a flexible custom Drupal theme. The site makes excellent use of Drupal's multiple language and translation management tools.

Jack Nichols

We built the campaign website of Wake County Democratic Party Chair Jack Nichols when he ran for County Commissioner in 2010. He wanted a site that wasn’t overly complicated but allowed for communication between him, his potential voters, his volunteers, and his donors. So we implemented an open source solution that was intuitive and allowed users to easily add content and communicate what they wanted.

For online fundraising, we integrated with Drupal to facilitate campaign finance compliance and encourage donors to contribute online.

Blue NC

We have worked with BlueNC over several election cycles. Richir Outreach has served as a one stop shop for this DNC credentialed statewide blog. We have provided solutions for the blogging community's social media, design, web development, hosting, and data management needs. With over a thousand registered contributors, BlueNC serves a vital role as a social network for North Carolina's progressive community.


For the North Carolina Voters for Clean Elections we efficiently redesigned and migrated their existing site. To do this we used an open source content management system (Drupal) and innovated upon an existing open source design solution. This balanced approach allowed Richir Outreach to deliver the work complete in under a week.


For New York Communities for Change, we developed a web application that would allow users to search for schools in the New York City area and determine whether they had been tested for harmful chemicals and what the results of those tests were. This was an exciting project to use Drupal for a robust search tool.
