This year, our members asked us to expand our people-powered campaigning to hear more about the major stories that are shaping our future.
So here it is – the Avaaz Daily Briefing. It’s for us: global citizens who want a better world.
The media we have now are too often cynical, infotainment-obsessed and in thrall to corporate interests. To bring about the changes we all want, our world needs better media – less negative and passive. The Daily Briefing is our contribution to that goal. Here we curate the most important stories of the day and we give readers the chance to take action: to have an impact on the issues we're talking about.
With the help of our many partners and millions of members across the world, our briefings will dig deep – through the bias, the propaganda and the spin to find out what’s really going on. Mining the most important events of the day, we aim to tell a fuller, better-informed story that helps the reader to participate in shaping events as they unfold.
Time and again the power and impact of this community has helped change the world. This new briefing aims to build on that, to give people the tools not only to discuss the change they want to see, but also to make it happen.
With thanks and hope,
Ricken, Mary, Nick, Alex, Sam, Elinor, Elana, Natalie and the Avaaz team
Our member-funded model keeps us independent and accountable. Because Avaaz is wholly member-funded, democratic accountability is in our DNA. No corporate sponsor or government backer can insist that Avaaz shift its priorities to suit some external agenda — we simply don't accept funds from governments or corporations.
