CitizenGo is a mobilization platform focused on online petitions, loosely resembling a Christian conservative equivalent of Change.org.

CitizenGo is an offshoot of Hazte Oir and is affiliated with the El Yunque catholic sect. Hazte Oir was subsequently absorbed into CitizenGo in 2017. Between 2009 and 2018, the two organizations generated a combined $32.8 million, making it the 4th largest anti-gender funder in Europe as of 2018. 

CitizenGo is a member of the World Congress of Families and regularly collaborates with the Political Network for Values. Founder Ignacio Arsuaga sits on the board of the World Congress of Families. Alongside organizations such as ADF International, CitizenGo is also a cosponsor of Agenda Europe summits. The organization’s links extend to the American evangelical right: Brian Brown and Sharon Slater sit on the board of CitizenGo.

The hundreds of petitions on CitizenGo’s website target LGBTQ+ rights, abortion, and the WHO. These petitions rely on misinformation as a rule, often claiming that gay people are pedophiles and that pro-rights organizations are breaking the law. Since October 7, CitizenGo petitions have increasingly focused on pro-Israel and anti-demonstration positions. 

Beyond this online platform, CitizenGo has offices in 15 countries across Africa, Latin America, Oceania, and Europe. In Africa, CitizenGo’s petitions and online misinformation have had material effects: CitizenGo smear campaigns have led to the closures of women’s health clinics in Nigeria and Kenya. In Ghana, CitizenGo pushed for the 2024 Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Value Bill criminalizing LGBTQ+ people.
