Powerful new free petition tool launched by Change.org, powered by SalsaSubmitted Mon Nov 23 2009 16:42:00 GMT-0500 (EST) by Jason Z.
Free petition tools have long lineage on the Internet; they're one of the evolutionary forebears of comprehensive online communications platforms like Salsa.
So it was only fitting when Change.org went looking to bring the boring standalone online petition out of the Stone Age that it looked to Salsa for some tools beyond a stone wheel and a mastodon-bone club.
Behold: the just-launched Change.org petition, the most powerful online petition tool on the web.
In addition to a friendly interface that Change.org built, it's got a hook to the Salsa back end for add-ons like district-matched message targeting, so that petition signers' messages go straight to the people that need to hear them.
This, of course, comes standard with all the usual petition tools too, plus login access for the petition creator to manage the petition drive. Take it for a spin here.
