Qwanz is a fun, easy to use platform for daily democratic participation. If you’re on Qwanz, you’re a game-changer, a world-shaper, a political gangster; you have opinions, you have a voice, and you want to be heard.
You’ve got your go-to news outlets right? Various sources where you get your information? Of course, we all do. But, here’s a question: Where’s your public opinion outlet?
Qwanz is designed to fill that void in the democratic landscape. We’re a hub for public recourse, a place for you to react to the day’s latest and greatest, to test the claims you’ve heard in popular media, to propose your own solutions for the public to consider, and, above all else, to GET INVOLVED.
We thought about petition sites, and how thousands, even millions of people coming together in protest can be a powerful force of change. But a protest is one-sided—it only accounts for the people who feel one way on an issue. A poll, on the other hand, reveals the whole composition. It can be used constructively, to prove public sentiment, and to call for change just the same way as a petition, but without all the limitations.
Here on Qwanz, you make a poll, take a poll, vote, comment, debate, engage, and then you can go a step further. QWANZ IT. Send poll results directly from the site to where you think they should go, public officials, corporations, government agencies, or any one of 20,000 journalists with stakes in the question at hand.
We provide you with the concept, the tools, the platform, and the network.
This is Qwanz. How will you use it?
