Avaaz.org "was co-founded by Res Publica, a global civic advocacy group, and MoveOn.org, an online community that has pioneered internet advocacy in the United States." Avaaz is formally allied with 350.org.

"Avaaz.org (Our name means "Voice" or "Song" in several languages including Hindi, Urdu, Farsi, Nepalese, Dari, Turkish, and Bosnian) is a community of global citizens who take action on the major issues facing the world today."

"Avaaz.org was developed and established by a group of social entrepeneurs who have worked at the intersection of global justice issues and new online organizing techniques. Avaaz.org’s individual co-founders are Executive Director Ricken Patel, Jeremy Heimans, David Madden, Eli Pariser, Tom Perriello, Tom Pravda and Andrea Woodhouse." [1]
