Avaaz is an international campaigning organization with a simple democratic mission: to close the gap between the world we have, and the world most people everywhere want. Avaaz (the name means "voice" or "song" in many languages) works on issues ranging from climate change and environmental protections to human rights, conflict, poverty, and democracy.
The organization has enjoyed a dramatic rise since launching in 2007, reaching almost 10 million members and climbing fast. Avaaz members have taken over 40 million actions, told over 100 million friends about Avaaz campaigns, donated over $20 million online, and organised 10,000 rallies and events in every country of the world. Operating in 16 languages with a staff of 40, Avaaz is 100% member-funded.
