Influence over decision makers
We help people reach the business and government leaders whose decisions impact their lives, giving them the power they deserve. Connecting advocates and decision makers facilitates meaningful changes in policies, laws and business practices.
Change.org staff helped 24 year old, Clenesha Garland successfully petition for her mother’s release from prison. 17 years ago, her mother, Sharanda Jones was sentenced to a life-sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense. After driving the petition forward, Sharanda was granted clemency and released.
Expert campaign advice
Most people who start petitions are new to the world of advocacy and activism. Our staff provide advice for mobilizing support, generating media interest and lobbying elected officials.
Tara started a petition asking her senators to hold town hall meetings to address questions from their constituents. After working with Change.org staff, she was featured on popular media outlets including NBC News and both senators scheduled local town hall meetings. Says Tara about her experience, “our voices have power; look at what my voice has done.”
Better activism technology
The technology we build at Change.org empowers everyday people to improve the world around them. We have big ideas for the future, but we need your financial support to fuel new technological development.
We recently added crowdfunding to petitions, so you can now fundraise and contribute money to help people win. Amanda Nguyen used the tool to raise over $20,000, which meant she could bring other sexual assault survivors to Washington, D.C. to deliver her petition to Congress.
We can't do this type of work without your generous support.
