Avaaz is a global civic organization launched in January 2007 that promotes activism on issues such as climate change, human rights, animal rights, corruption, poverty, and conflict; it works to "close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want." The organization operates in 15 languages and claims over forty million members in 194 countries, and The Guardian considers it "the globe's largest and most powerful online activist network".
Avaaz organized a petition calling for "drastically increasing resettlement and relocation of refugees in a way that reunites families and shares responsibility across Europe, and the world; giving financial and technical support to countries on the frontline of the crisis; and ensuring security actions do not put those seeking sanctuary at risk. The magnitude of this crisis requires united, urgent and massive humanitarian action".
