How FiNC was Born
Future is Now Coalition (FiNC) is a unique socio-political organization that seeks to positively change the American political landscape and upgrade our nation’s democracy. The story of how FiNC came to exist is one of persistence. We’re sharing our origin story and introducing our founder, Travis Misurell. Truly, his vision brought our team together to change the world.
Recognizing the Need for Change
The 2020 election highlighted the increased polarization of American politics. Rampant misinformation and confirmation bias from media outlets created a chasm between red and blue.
Our elected officials perpetuate this divisiveness and promote a narrative of “us vs. them”. There are more people in agreement on policies and other issues than the media and politicians lead you to believe.
In a world where we’re being told to choose between left and right, most voters lie somewhere in between. We acknowledge that most voters are looking for more than what either party is offering.
About the Founder
Some view neurodivergence as a hindrance. For Travis, this couldn’t be further from the truth, recognizing it as a wellspring of unique perspectives that fuel innovation. He envisions a world where the strengths of atypical thinkers are harnessed as a competitive advantage.
Travis, himself a neurodivergent thinker armed with a BA in Psychology and extensive experience in Operations and Process Improvement, saw the flaws in our political systems and became a catalyst for change.
Leveraging his background, Travis views government as the operations of our society. He developed tools and new narratives to reframe how citizens look at politics, birthing the concept of Digital Politics. With a commitment to transparency and a passion for empowering Americans, Travis founded FiNC.
The organization, grounded in the belief that neurodivergent and atypical thinkers can revolutionize the political process, has grown to include over 40 dedicated volunteers working to bring FiNC, Digital Democracy, and Digital Politics to life.
Through FiNC, Travis is reshaping the political landscape to better serve the average American.
