Avaav is a United States company that was established in 2007. The mission of Avaav, which means “voice” in a number of Asian, Middle Eastern, and European languages, is to make the world we live in closer to the one that people around the world actually want. This encompasses a number of vital issues that affect everyone including human rights, climate change, poverty, corruption, human and animal rights, and conflicts around the globe.
Avaaz has been named by The Guardian as one of the largest and strongest online activist organizations in the world. It was co-founded by Moveon.org and Res Publica. The Service Employees International Union was also involved from the start in the nonprofit organization. The President and Executive Director of Avaav is Ricken Patel who is of Canadian-British citizenship. Other high-ranking members include Jeremy Heimans, David Madden, and Andrea Woodhouse.
Another part of Avaav is to connect practical idealists from across the globe. The company doesn’t have an ideology, instead it wants a realistic way of achieving its aim to improve the world. One of the achievements of Avaav is setting up proxy servers during the protests that took place during Iranian Presidential elections in 2009. These servers allowed Iranian protestors to post videos and dialogue about the protests in order to publicize them across the world.
A current campaign running on Avaaz‘s website is to stop the abuse and torture of animals on factory farms. Recent videos have shown animals being hacked to death while alive and conscious, including beheadings and dismemberment. Avaaz is collecting money in order to raise funds to obtain more footage from undercover journalists and then run huge campaigns that will reach the awareness of the average citizen to this type of savage abuse. Avaaz is looking to force government legislation that will stop these types of practices.
