This app for crowdsourced decision making helps make activism a more collaborative and democratic effort. Inspired by the hand signals used during the Occupy Wall Street protest in 2011, Loomio is an open-source web app from activist Benjamin Knight. The Wellington, New Zealand Occupy Wall Street camp organizer developed Loomio not just for protests, but also to help non-profit organizations and small businesses.

The platform lets you vote yes, no, block or abstain and include a short description of why you voted the way you did. You can also change your vote as long as it's before the established deadline.

The social enterprise behind the online tool for crowdsourced decision making is all about collaboration. They are currently working on making this tool more accessible to those without the internet.
