How To

Need even more people to see your petition?

In moments of crisis, we all look for ways to make a difference. Adding your name to a petition can be a bold act of solidarity and support. And by getting even more people to sign it, you increase the petition’s chance of winning.

With Promoted Petitions, you can support a petition with more than just your own signature – it’s a way to put your money toward making a difference too. By promoting a petition, you’re buying advertisements for it. Your ads help the petition quickly reach far more people, so more people can sign it.

With more signatures, a petition can become truly influential. The media is more likely to cover the story of the petition. There is more public pressure for an official response. There is a better chance of winning.

Promoted Petitions offer the chance to help a petition win and influence policy makers to make lasting, sustainable changes. In some cases, a successful petition can result in policy makers investing a large sum of money to address the issue at the heart of the petition. 

In other words, every dollar spent to promote a petition can have an outsized impact.
