Quick tips on taking action

Creating a Petition

  • Clearly define your goals.
  • Select a "target" capable of creating or influencing the necessary change.
  • Show people why your issue is important to them.
  • State your cause briefly: develop an "elevator pitch" to tell your story quickly.

Promoting Your Petition

  • Tell everyone in your address book and social networks.
  • Post on relevant blogs.
  • Reach out to communities and organizations with similar goals.
  • Target specific "swing" districts or communities.
  • Contact online and traditional media.
  • Create a compelling slideshow via GoldMail or video ad for YouTube.
