Featured Petitions

Throughout history, petitions have helped to bring about significant changes in government. Notably, nearly 200 years ago, petitions demanding an end to slavery gathered over a hundred thousand signatures and became a catalyst that motivated Congress to take up the issue and eventually outlaw it altogether. In fact, the act of organizing and networking those petition drives helped prepare the women’s suffrage movement for their own political battle years later.

These days, technology allows us to provide you with opportunity to sign a petition in a quick, simple way, with no need to answer the door, pay for postage, or make a trip to the local courthouse.
