Change.org Members Make It Possible
This is what your contribution supports:
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.
Two 11-year old students started out with a science project about plastic waste. With help from Change.org, their project grew into an international campaign asking Starbucks to reduce their impact on the environment. Over 340,000 signatures later, their campaign influenced Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson to invest $10 million USD to develop a fully recyclable and compostable cup.
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.
Belinda Bradley struggled to find the best route for a trip with her mom in a wheelchair. By launching her petition and mobilizing support from 300,000 people, she convinced the world’s biggest tech company, Google, to help disabled people all over the world.
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.
Millions of citizens use Change.org to start petitions on the causes they care about. They’ve won petitions on everything from securing health insurance coverage for life-saving treatments, to receiving clemency, and fighting back against sexual assault.
