The White House has just launched We the People on WhiteHouse.gov. We the People is a new way for Americans to create and sign petitions calling on the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues.
Here's how We the People works:
1. Create or Sign a Petition: Anyone 13 or older can create or sign a petition on WhiteHouse.gov asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range issues.
2. Build Support and Gather Signatures for your Petition: It's up to you to build support for a petition. Use email, Facebook, Twitter and word of mouth to tell your friends, family and coworkers about the petitions you care about.
3. The White House Reviews and Responds: If a petition reaches a certain amount of signatures, it will be reviewed by a group of White House officials, referred to other relevant policymakers and an official response will be issued.
