United By Their Values, the Avaaz Online Community Continues To Grow

What Or Who Is Avaaz?

Avaaz is an online community launched in 2007 that now reaches around the world. Its membership comes from all walks of life, people with similar beliefs and feelings on the condition of our world today. They unite to promote global activism and fight for human as well as animal rights. Avaaz fights against poverty, climate change, and corrupt politics as well.

They chose a fitting name. One translation of Avaaz is from the Persian word meaning “song” or “voice” and they use it to be heard by millions. A big gap exists between the world as it is, and the world as we wish it was. Their mission is to close that gap, and they work towards that goal everyday and more information click here.

 

Common Values Merge To Form Strong Bonds

It’s true that many groups who started out with the same zeal and desires as Avaaz lost effectiveness as time wore away their determination. Infighting begins and soon, the organization is lost to internal politics. Avaaz understands that people don’t always agree on details so rather than aim for 100% agreement, they leave it to the individual whether they want to participate in a particular campaign, or not and learn more about Avaaz.

Much of its membership comes from those who have joined the fight on a particular issue and then gone on to help with other campaigns. Avaaz proves on a regular basis that when you get enough people together who all believe in the same things, miracles are possible and Avaaz’s lacrosse camp.

 

The Power of Avaaz Comes From Its Members

Any member can submit ideas for a campaign, they do not have a “ruling council” that decides what is worth fighting for and then expect the rest of the organization to agree with them. Ideas are submitted and then discussed by members. Decisions are made based on issues that get the strongest response, a simple but hugely effective policy. This “sharing of thoughts” is a big reason the Avaaz community continues to grow and thrive where others have failed and https://www.flickr.com/photos/avaaz/.
