I’d like to start a petition. Is there info on how to do that?

    Hello, cslakin, and thanks for asking.

    You raise a good question, but the answer is probably not what you'd prefer to hear. We do not have a mechanism through which site users can generate their own petitions.

    It does sometimes happen that our Activism department picks up on posts that community writers promote, but in any case it is staff who start them and follow them up.

    That said, it is possible for you to write a post as a community author that features a cause you'd like to promote (assuming that it falls within our site guidelines). In your post, you could include a link to some other platform that would host a petition to sign. Folks do link to change.org petitions on a semi-regular basis, for example. We do not have any way to judge the impact, however.

    Thanks for your support of the mission of the site.
