Discovery Channel backs down!


Big news! For weeks, the Discovery Channel refused to show the stunning conclusions of its own Frozen Planet documentary series that showed the devastating effects that climate change has had on the North and South Poles -- and the danger it portends for the rest of the planet. 
But just hours after Claudia Abbott-Barish's Change.org petition hit 75,000 signatures, Discovery backed down, and agreed to air the final episode (all about climate change) in its entirety! 
It's another sign that something different is happening all over the world. Every day, people are taking a stand on local, state and national issues that matter to them, and they're winning.
Change.org has a simple goal -- enable anyone, anywhere, to start, join and win campaigns about issues that are important to them. We're a community of more than 5 million people, and together we've achieved some amazing victories.
In the last few weeks, people have used the Change.org platform to stop young people from being deported, save homes from foreclosure, and force big banks to drop outrageous fees for using a debit card. A Burmese monk living in Brooklyn successfully petitioned Hillary Clinton to speak out forcefully about political prisoners in his home country. An animal lover stopped a shelter in North Carolina from slaughtering thousands of dogs. A Syrian activist got Western tech companies to stop supplying spying technology to the violent Syrain regime. Two LGBT teens in Michigan pushed their state legislature to drop a harmful exemption from an anti-bullying law.
It's amazing to watch. And, if you're like me, you can't wait to see what happens next.
We're so proud to help you win.
