Philadelphia Inquirer profile of Change.org includes seahorse campaign
Jul 9, 2012 — In a recent profile of Change.org and campaigns run on the site, GreenSpace writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote:
"The Center for Biological Diversity uses Change.org as a complement to its other scientific and legal advocacy on endangered species issues. Its latest pstition urges protection for the dwarf seahorse, and as of last week, 100,580 people had signed.
There's value in demonstrating public support, ” said Center spokesman Mike Stark. "It used to be done in town hall meetings, stacks of letters of phone calls. This is simply another way to channel those voices and broadcast them to those who are making decisions.""
Keep fighting for people power!
