PROOF OF CONCEPT: CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Be Heard uses Unum ID to verify constituent identities.

Be Heard is a civic engagement platform that lets people contact representatives in government. It uses Unum ID to let them do so as verified constituents. This proof of concept achieved three key goals:

Prove Unum ID works across all channels
Mobile and desktop websites, apps, Chrome extensions, chatbots, and more.
Apply blockchain identity to an important problem everyone understands
Bots are wreaking havoc on our politics, and everyone knows it.
Test the technology with people in all walks of life
Every geographic region and demographic.
Goal #1: Prove Unum ID works across all channels

Unum ID verifies users as as constituents wherever they are.

Be Heard has a wide variety of products across many different channels. Unum ID integrates with all of them. There's a mobile app, a Chrome extension, chatbots, and a widget that can be embedded on websites. (Try the widget and petition below.)

Goal #2: apply blockchain identity to an important problem everyone understands

Unum ID helps secure our democracy against bots.

Everyone knows about the problem of bots in politics. Identity fraud is wreaking havoc on our democracy. Fake accounts on social media are fueling misinformation campaigns, and fake messages are flooding representatives and federal agencies, drowning out the opinions of real Americans. For example, the FCC recevied 21.7 million public comments about net neutrality in 2017, but Pew Research found that a shocking 94% of them were fake or duplicate.

By using Unum ID to verify users as constituents, Be Heard helps stop bots, lobbyists, spammers, and foreign agents from drowning out the voices of real people like you.

Goal #3: user test with people in every walk of life

We acquired users in 48 US states and across all age groups.

Many technologies only cater to a small slice of the population, but identity tech must work for everyone. Be Heard has users across a huge range of locations and demographics, so it allowed us to demonstrate the usability of Unum ID.
