How can you reach millions of people with a traditional, paper petition without a lot of funding and time? Ben Rattray solved that problem when he founded Change.org, the world’s fastest-growing platform for petition-based social action. Rattay, Change.org’s current CEO, was deemed one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2012 by Time Magazine.
On “the pursuit of effective collective action,” Rattay came up with the idea for Change.org. Change.org, a for-profit corporation, provides a platform on which users can post a variety of diverse causes, from urging companies to be more eco-friendly, to removing cancer-causing ingredients from food packaging, to helping people who need heart transplants. Change.org’s mission is to empower individuals and organizations to create change in their community, city or country, thus making our world a better, safer place, one petition at a time.
