CrowdVoice was created with the belief that access to organized information
is the cornerstone of social change and the advancement of human rights.
The open source platform makes sense of the flow of information
across the web on social movements and ongoing conflicts, raising awareness
and deepening insight into the forces of change worldwide.

The Next Web
“Both the website and iOS apps are beautifully designed, and offer the Middle East’s socially conscious musicians a unique opportunity to reach an international audience.”
“If you want to know what the anthem of change will be, check out mideastunes.com, where the region's revolutionary playlist is ready for download. This is no sugarcoated pop site. The music is about social change.”
“Mideast Tunes is the only worthy app in the MENA for people who wish to explore what musicians do when they aren’t told what to do by record labels.You can learn about any underground music scene in the Arab world and listen to their music offline for free.”
“CrowdVoice is worthy of the attention: a site that aggregates images, videos and links from witnesses of oppression around the world: in the Middle East, but also as far afield as Uganda, North Korea, Kyrgyzstan and Oakland.”
“CrowdVoice spotlights all content on the web related to campaigns and protests. If one online activist comes across a spare or one-sided post, he can easily supplement information. Furthermore, campaign participants can add anecdotes and first-hand experiences so that others can check in from afar.”
“…a better resource for journalists wanting to report on social movements, even ones in countries where they don’t speak the appropriate language.”
“It is a good resource for photos and videos of protests as well as links to news stories and reports”
“Awesome site. The best part? You can subscribe to/follow any article or voice that piques your interest, which means one less excuse that I have to fall behind in my current events. This is a great resource to release unknown stories and empower them to make the change.”
“CrowdVoice seeks to provide a comprehensive picture of movements of dissent which are often reduced to either death toll numbers or which world leader said what.”
