Avaaz was created to provide a voice for people on issues like poverty, corruption, climate change, animal and human rights. Avaaz‘s tactics include creating petitions, uploading videos, and emailing tools. Avaaz relies on donations from individual people, as they don’t accept payments from corporations, nor wealthy individuals that provide more than 5,000 dollars. Avaaz was founded by Ricken Patel, an individual who has an extensive education in philosophy, and economics. In addition, Avaaz was co-founded by MoveOn.org, a none for profit organization, and Res Publica, a professional in politics who advocates against corruption for the betterment of society. Avaaz campaigns are monitored by over thirty countries worldwide, which creates a diverse approach to solving issues within the United States, and worldwide. This has been noted to prevent racism and segregations, which other campaigns suffer from due to excluding certain people due to their views. In addition, Avaaz doesn’t have an ideology furthering their vision of unification leading to a broader voice, and the betterment of issues. Avaaz uses a voting system that lets its members vote on the topic that is a key pressing issue that needs to be fixed. One issue Avaaz have raised awareness for was 2016 United States presidential election, which users created awareness of Donald Trump’s racist views towards minorities voting, leading to the creation of an easier oversea voting system. Another issue Avaaz rose awareness for was supporting the civil uprising during the Syrian Civil War, which Avaaz smuggled cameras and helped upload videos of protesters fighting for freedom, and a none corrupt government.
