OrangeU Going was founded to bridge the communication gap between New Yorkers who want to get involved and the organizations and community leaders trying to engage them. Before OrangeU Going, New Yorkers struggled to find ways to connect with and shape their communities. Being an engaged New Yorker meant lots of research, time, and an inbox jammed with hundreds of newsletters. New Yorkers wanted to get involved, but were overwhelmed before they took the first step.

Research points to lack of accessibility as the primary barrier to civic engagement - New Yorkers simply didn't know where to easily find engaging, action-oriented civic events. New York State was ranked nearly dead last in the nation for civic engagement and volunteering in 2015, and voter turnout in New York City has been reported to be as low at eight percent. We needed a new approach to address the problem.

OrangeU Going makes it easy for New Yorkers, organizations, and elected officials to connect and affect change. The platform is uniquely built to foster civic engagement. We exclusively feature the civic, community and political events of thousands of New York City organizations all on one site.  Our custom search filter helps you find events you're interested in by issue area, event type, location, price, legislative district, and more.

OrangeU Going Founder Samantha Diliberti built her career in and around government, having worked for Governor Cuomo, Senator Gillibrand, City & State Magazine, New York Nonprofit Media, and a government relations firm. After years of answering the most frequently asked question posed by New Yorkers, "How can I get involved?", Samantha finally found a way to simplify her answer - "Check out"

OrangeU Going - New York's civic engagement platform where New Yorkers connect to affect change. 


OrangeU Going connects New Yorkers, organizations, and electeds by listing civic, community, and political events all on one site. Events we love to list include rallies, hearings, conferences, fundraisers, roundtables, community events, political events, forums and more.
