Enabling petition power on a global scale

There was a time when if someone wanted to create a petition, it meant collecting each pen-and-ink signature on pieces of paper before delivering them in a box to decision makers.

Since 2007, Change.org has allowed more than 53 million people to sign petitions online. Their platform enables anyone to start a petition for free, on any topic. Decision makers then have the opportunity to react and engage with the issue, allowing those who formulated it to declare victory as soon as a solution is found.

Change.org is a certified B Corporation and has its social mission written into its by-laws.

KOIS invested in Change.org in 2013, believing in its ability to empower citizens in the world with innovative and effective tools to make change happen on a systemic and regulatory level.
