New Way to Share Your Thoughts with the White House

Friday, September 23, 2011

The White House has just launched We the People on It's a new way for Americans to create and sign petitions calling on the Obama Administration to take action on a range issues that are important to you - like small business contracting, environmental justice, or civil rights.

Check out We the People.

We the People is easy to use. Here's a message from the White House on how We the People works for you:

  1. Create or Sign a Petition: Anyone 13 or older can create or sign a petition on asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range issues. Your petition will finish the sentence "We believe the Obama Administration should _____."
  2. Build Support and Gather Signatures for your Petition: It's up to you to build support for a petition. Use email, Facebook, Twitter and word of mouth to tell your friends, family and coworkers about the petitions you care about.
  3. The White House Reviews and Responds: If a petition reaches 5,000 supporters within 30 days, it will be reviewed by a standing group of White House officials, referred to any other relevant policymakers and an official response will be issued.

The idea of petitioning the White House or the government isn't new, but this tool is. The White House has never tried anything like this before, and as a result, they will probably have to make some adjustments as they go. The White House blog will post updates on using We the People.

So think about an issue you care about, who you can reach out to join you, and get started:
