A Petition is like a Vote. But a petition is more then a vote because you put your name and address on it. That means you're showing commitment, and that you're showing that you understand the problem, and that you are willing to stand up for this particular cause.
But petitions are only one piece of the Making Improvements Process. Everyone's vote must include the corresponding actions that support the reasons for the petition. If you vote for more recycling, then you should also take the necessary steps to increase your own recycling amounts. If you are against a war, then you should not support wars, meaning, just because you are against something, doesn't mean that you are not supporting wars in other ways.
Almost every person on the planet has the power
to vote every day of their life, because every action that you take is
either a vote for something, or a vote against something.
So every petition will list the corresponding actions that support the goal of the petition.
This way everyone will have several different ways of making the petition successful.
We will never force people to make hard choices, but we will make sure that you're aware of your choices. The world is in your hands.

request to do something, most commonly addressed to a government

I Love the Simplicity of a Phone Call
I was given telephone number that
automatically connects you to your local representative just by typing
in your area code, and then you can tell the representative how you
would like them to vote on upcoming legislation. We have to make sure
that more people know about this easy way of contacting your
representative, because only a few people know about it. Then after
the legislation was voted on I was sent a link that showed me how my
representative voted. This is how it should be all the time.
