Matrix for Worker Power

Introduction to Wobbly

How a movement communicates determines the structure and success of that movement. It could even be said that a movement is the way that it communicates. The labour movement has existed for centuries. Can Matrix increase the movement's power in the next decade and beyond?

Wobbly is a chat app built on Matrix designed for bottom-up worker organising to build a democratic economy and society.

We're excited about the potential of the Spaces API and the custom JSON events system to build a very powerful tool for democratic self-organising spaces.

While the project has existed in some form since 2015, we started using Matrix at the start of 2020 and have made much more progress in that time.
