The next big petition

CREDO Mobilize

Dear 5849376,

Recently CREDO activists around the country have launched petitions on that have led to incredible campaign victories. Take a look at a few examples below, then click here to launch your own CREDO-style campaign for progressive change.

  • The federal minimum wage is currently just $7.25 an hour and Republicans have repeatedly blocked efforts to increase it, so many states have taken matters into their own hands by creating a state minimum wage that is higher than the federal minimum. CREDO activist Theresa Lynch of Maryland started a petition urging the Maryland state legislature to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. After more than 2,000 CREDO activists in Maryland signed Theresa's petition, the state legislature did just that.

  • One of New York state's best clean energy laws, the NY-Sun Inititiative, was recently in danger of expiring. CREDO activist Raina Russo created a petition calling on the New York Public Service Commission to save the program, and helped get more than 10,000 people sign it. After Raina delivered the petition signatures, the Public Service Commission extended the program until 2023, giving a huge boost to New York's growing solar power industry and helping reduce carbon pollution.

Start a petition!

Campaigns are successful when you choose an issue that people are excited or upset about, target the decision maker with the power to address the situation, and organize around the issue to get people to sign your petition.

CREDO activists around the country have launched and won dozens of campaigns fighting for equality, economic justice and environmental protections, among other issues. Will you lead the next successful campaign?

If you launch a petition on that is strategic, progressive and well-written, and organize around it to generate some momentum, a CREDO campaigner will contact you to help with your petition.

Start your own petition on CREDO Mobilize and fight for the change you want to see in your community, your state, or the United States.

Thanks for helping lead the people-powered movement for progressive change.
