Big news! For

the danger it portends for the rest of the planet.
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.
