Forum Post: Is there an issue that needs to be brought out into the light of Day? One that has not been put to lobbying?

Petitioning is Lobbying by another name.

If you have the details. Maybe you might want to try being an author for change.

Here is a great opportunity to try.


Hi Dan,

Here at Care2, we work hard every day to make your experience the best it can be.

Petition Creation Gets Even Easier!

This week, we are rolling out major enhancements to our petition creation tool!

http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/AGiPp/zmoz/B18Bb

The new streamlined process includes a simplified petition creation procedure, a snazzier user interface, and even more suggestions to help you succeed.

After creating a new petition, Care2 members will now be taken directly to their petition page. On this first visit, a popup will appear, allowing you to make additional enhancements such as adding a photograph or writing a message to signers. Any time you want to edit your petition in the future, all you have to do is click the orange management links in the top righthand corner of your petition.

This transformation will make it even easier to create powerful petitions that will truly make a difference.

Petition Spotlight

A group of Care2 activists has created a petition that needs your help. The Campaign to Save Pickfair Studios is working to prevent development company Skye Partners from demolishing a historic film studio in West Hollywood, California.

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/868/826/981/save-pickfair-studios/

Established by United Artists founders Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, and Douglas Fairbanks, the Pickford-Fairbanks Studio has been in its current location since 1920. Over the years, film stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and Frank Sinatra have graced the sets and sound rooms of this glamorous studio.

Now, Skye Partners wants to destroy all this history and replace it with hideous glass cube sculptures. Please sign this petition and tell Skye Partners that this is completely unacceptable.

History is not disposable. We are to much of a disposable society. We need to honor our past not pave it over with something new. No wonder this society is losing continuity. There is no drive to remember our past where we all came from and the dreams we had for the future.

Exactly, start seeeing the glass as half full. We have so much to be thankful for .. and to build on, given by generations and centuries of struggles and consideration. Take democracy, and our institutions of government, this was not an easy task to establish.. but one so many are willing to throw away it seems.. What causes such madness , such total disrespect for a once proud and honored nation.. is it the freedoms? has freedom of ..everything" spoiled us .. do we no longer appreciate what was given to us by hard work.. is it the easy lives we live .. or is it we simply have a conquering soul and we create our own enemies.. are self destructive.. is peace not really what we want?
