Ideas Description

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.
