The world’s platform for change through petitioning by the public
With the advent of social media, the general public has more power to inspire change than ever before. Uniting the power of social marketing with petitioning, anyone can choose and promote causes they care about, and reach audiences that may never have been reached before.
Change.org is a free online petitioning platform. Anyone can start a petition about a change they want to see, and upload it to the website. The petition is then shared and promoted by the creator, and the cause builds momentum as more people sign the petition and share it on their own social media pages. Causes that garner a lot of popular support might catch the attention of the press and through media propagation can reach out to new audiences and circles beyond those of the petition’s creator.
