Who Isn't Yabberz for?
We are bigger than Trump and his Agenda

In 2014 Melissa and Mike Horton launched Yabberz, a company funded by private investors and located in Silicon Valley, as a unique platform for the free flowing discussion of a variety of ideas on a site designed to promote troll-free interaction. Times have changed.
Democracy has been compromised with the election of Donald J Trump. The truth now has no name; hypocrisy no limits. Hate and division now rule the free world. We shall not wait until we falter.
As of February 2017 the Yabberz mission has changed to Resist, Repeal, and Replace Donald J. Trump.
