Make change with an online petition
A petition is a time-tested way to make change. At its simplest, it’s a clear request to a decision maker, signed by many supporters. With Change.org’s powerful online petition tool, you have power to connect with more people — and make more change — than ever before. Here’s how:
Why Online Petitions Work
Think of it this way: What if your company received thousands of emails from valued customers asking you to use a different supplier for your parts? What if you started to receive emails from each of your neighbours asking you to stop playing loud music at night? How quickly would you act?
That’s the unique thing about creating an online petition on Change.org: when you specify an email address for your target, each time a supporter signs your petition, an email is automatically sent directly to that person. Governments, companies and individuals value their reputations and feel accountable to their neighbours, constituents and customers. When hundreds or even thousands of emails arrive in their inboxes, the message is very hard to ignore.
