Decisions Are Made By People Who Show Up

But not all of us can regularly spend hours in townhall meetings – like at 4PM on a Wednesday.

Agora's algorithm runs a rigorous 10-point check using public data to verify our users' identities. We're bringing back civility in public discourse. Trolls – adios!
