About Us

Modern Action was founded in Pittsburgh, PA by two college students looking to make online activism more effective. 

Our Story

In August of 2020, Colum O'Brien and Jack Groshek realized that there was a giant demographic of people who were passionate about social issues, but didn’t know what they could do to help. A major outlet was through standard online petitions, but it was clear they were not the most effective format. They also realized that protesting was not accessible to everyone, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. So they set out to create a platform that would allow anyone to successfully make their voice heard. After lots of hard work, modernacton.io was born.
