Mobile Event Management Company to Help Foster Communication and Connection Among Marchers During the March For Our Lives Demonstration

SAN FRANCISCOMarch 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — DoubleDutch, the leading Live Engagement Marketing platform, today announced it is supporting the March For Our Lives and will help power the March 24th demonstrations. March For Our Lives has accepted the support of DoubleDutch after seeing how DoubleDutch’s mobile event app helped foster connection at the 2017 Women’s March on Washington. The DoubleDutch app will help event organizers coordinate the demonstration, engage with marchers, and amplify the movement’s message to end gun violence in schools.

“We are excited to use the DoubleDutch app to help coordinate the various marches, engage with marchers, and keep them updated throughout the demonstration,” organizers of the march said. “We expect millions of participants worldwide.”

Organizers will utilize DoubleDutch’s messaging features like promoted posts and push notifications to connect with marchers and provide real-time updates. The DoubleDutch app has been made available before the event to allow supporters to learn what to expect at their local march.

“It is encouraging seeing the likes of Lyft, Salesforce, and others come together in support of such a powerful movement,” said Lawrence Coburn, CEO and co-founder of DoubleDutch. “We are honored to donate our app in support of March For Our Lives to connect and amplify the event.”
