INDIANAPOLIS - Sept. 8, 2016 - PRLog -- Open For Service, a nonprofit organization for promoting inclusive businesses, is launching a mobile app and web directory in partnership with Salesforce. The mobile app will serve as a directory of businesses worldwide where people of all religious beliefs, political views, races, gender identities, and sexual orientations are welcome.

For the past year, Open for Service has been creating a new community of businesses, organizations, allies, and partners to stop the negative effects of perceived discrimination. "We're proudly creating a positive environment for people to feel safe and valued for who they are," says Josh Driver, founder of Open for Service.

"Last year, community leaders in Indianapolis created a united front that crossed the aisles and became a force that showed the world that Indiana is Open for Service," Driver continues, referring to the RFRA legislation in Indiana. Many other metropolitan areas took notice. Community leaders spoke out against similar legislation in Georgia and North Carolina.

After a year of development, Open for Service is launching an updated directory any mobile app to help people find businesses and resources needed to safely thrive regardless of where they are located.

"Because of the rapid growth of the organization, we realized that we needed a new platform that can handle larger traffic and also be beneficial across the globe."  said Driver.  "With Salesforce as our platform we can now change the conversation away from negativity, and focus on solving a problem that needs an immediate resolution.  I believe that people are becoming more and more accepting, but we also need to consider, even in the short-term, ways to keep people safe while also promoting businesses that are doing the right thing."

On Thursday, September 8th Open for Service and Salesforce are holding a launch event to celebrate the work of all of the volunteers and community leaders that have helped to build a strong organization capable of helping others.
