Brady Kriss is the founder of Ragtag, a group of tech volunteers helping activists, organizers, and candidates leverage technology to amplify their work. Ragtag's volunteer team helps with product design, development, support, and education so that their partner organizations can focus on movement-building more efficiently and with broader impact.
In 2016, Brady organized and led a team of 500+ volunteers at DevProgress, where they created Open Source tools to support progressive candidates. Brady is an alumna of the Obama '12 campaign, where she was a member of the campaign's legendary tech team as Director of Support, and of Democracy Works, where she was the Partner Success Lead for TurboVote. In a past life, Brady was a technology lawyer, focused on software licensing, technology policy, and privacy issues. She likes her new gig better.
