We can all start an online petition to the USA Government at www.whitehouse.gov/petitons for consideration of the change we seek to create.

We can all participate in some social change if we upload a petition of importance to the White House and then get people to sign it. You never know, you may hit upon a good idea that is incorporated and contributes to a social change. Try it.
If a petition meets the signature threshold, it will be reviewed by the Administration and an official response will be issued. And they will make sure that the petition is sent to the appropriate policy makers in the Administration.

https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions or through various online petition services.

I realize that there are unlimited petitions being generated and many do not create their intended impact however it is still better to try for a positive change than to do nothing at all. Do you agree?

      Oct 2 2011: There are thousands of issues to petition for, peace as foreign policy, going green, sustainability, monitoring corporate america, controls on wall street, ending all US participation in wars etc....What is important to you? I looked at your bio and saw that you replied to a Ted Conversation: Will the Human race live to see the 22nd Century? 6 days ago: No. Well, if you think we are at that much risk I think that is a topic for a petition which will address the topics which you believe are leading humanity to be at this much peril. We have to wake up and address issues needing to be addressed before it is too late.
