Mission


  • 1. Unite all the knowledge in the policy ecosystem, making it easy to find basic facts as well as complex analyses of legislative, regulatory, and governmental information and actions.
  • 2. Deliver, for free, insight and context for complex legislation and regulations, leveling the policy knowledge and expertise gap between outside policy experts, professional influencers, government employees, and the American public.
  • 3. Boost the capacity of both the government and the electorate to marshall objective information within policy debates, diminishing the issues framing and advantages of persuasion that professional influencers, special interests, and bad actors hold over civic decision-making.

Principles


  • 1. The core Prolegis product offering is and will always be free to access.
  • 2. Prolegis is a stridently non-partisan organization, and we work proactively to maintain ideological neutrality in the delivery of our products, technology, and content.
  • 3. We clearly demarcate sponsored content where it’s featured in the platform, and we work with advertising partners whose messages we deem to be valuable, honest, and useful to our audiences.
  • 4. User privacy is paramount, and we protect users’ sensitive personal information zealously. We do not - nor will we ever - sell any personal information to any third party. We work only with highly trusted, industry-leading technology components to support the delivery of our products. Here is a list of all our stack components as well as their privacy and accountability policies.
  • 5. The Prolegis portal contains zero unverified user accounts and information sources.
