Top 10 Victories on Change.org in 2009
2009 was a year in which the Change.org community emerged as a powerful force for social change.
Our rapidly growing community of more than 1 million activists won dozens of campaigns over the past year, successfully pressuring multi-billion dollar companies to adopt more responsible and non-discriminatory practices, convincing federal departments to change outdated policies, and impacting legislative decisions on the local, state and national level.
As 2009 comes to a close, we wanted to take a brief look back at 10 victories we've had together - both to celebrate our achievements and to use these successes as guideposts for victorious campaigns to come on Change.org in 2010.
To view successful campaigns 6-10, which range from convincing Scholastic to end the censorship of gay friendly books to compelling the Department of Homeland Security to release undocumented students, click here to read the rest on The Change.org Blog >
Collectively, these successes demonstrate the internet's incredible potential for translating the voices of millions of caring people into effective collective action. And at Change.org, we've only just begun realizing this potential.
With your help in 2010, we expect many more victories. Whether it's starting your own campaign usingour powerful new petition tool or joining breaking campaigns each week, your individual participation makes us all more powerful.
Together, we're leading the movement to use the social web to advance social change. Over this next year, we at Change.org look forward to working with you to achieve even more of the change we all seek.
