We are a place for you to participate in public polls, give your opinions, join conversations, and initiate new public dialogues by creating polls of your own.
Qwanz is a space to engage with people in your network and the site’s community. Respond to, debate on, and influence the opinions of others in comment sections or through private messages.
We are the conduit for YOUR opinions.
We are not a petition site. While we value the democratic impetus of public protest, we believe that in order to give the most compelling argument for change, you need to show both sides of the story. That’s why we have you create polls—so public opinion can be shown as a whole composition. Unlike petitions, polls have no predetermined recipient. It’s up to you to decide how to constructively use the information.
We connect you with 20,000 journalists around the world, as well as thousands of government agencies, politicians, and corporations. Why? So you can QWANZ IT. After you vote, comment, and compare results, click the "Qwanz It" button to send data onto stakeholders and decision-makers with the power and influence to affect change.
Qwanz is the place, where to qwanz, means to take action. We want you to take a poll, and qwanz it. It's how you make a difference. Using meaningful reflections of public opinion as leverage, you can influence outcomes, add to a broader conversation, or create change on an issue, just by making sure that the information gets seen by the right people.
We welcome you to mobilize your social network. With the Qwanz survey widget, you can embed polls onto your personal websites, get feedback through your own survey, or see how your audience responds to a question circulating in the Qwanz community.
We are a community of people who care to make a difference, who have valuable things to say, and who want to be heard.
Qwanz is an independent, ideologically neutral platform, with no ties to any particular group or association, political, religious, or otherwise.
