SameSide is a woman & veteran-owned start-up by two UCLA graduates. By combining fun, authentic experiences with education, impact and financial gain, the SameSide platform enables entrepreneurs to cultivate community and move the needle for social issues through political action. Since August 2017, entrepreneurs and small businesses have hosted 24 experiences with nearly 500 guests to facilitate over 1400 phone calls to constituents and elected officials and signed over 1500 letters in support of legislation such as protecting Planned Parenthood & Obamacare, criminal justice reform, gun safety laws, the DREAM Act. Always combined with the political action is a fun and new experience such as learning to do stand-up comedy, brewery tours in a hot new area of Downtown Los Angeles, becoming a stunt-woman and more. This enables people who shy away from activism because it is intimidating to find a fun and accessible way to take action for the issues they care about. (please excuse the video not being in the suggested format. The one we have created shows our company in action and speaks to our mission.)
