Not all petition sites are created equal

This makes us different from other sites, like Change.org. Change also allows you to create an online petition, but doesn’t have an existing community vision that your campaign needs to be aligned with. Change.org bills itself as being ‘values-neutral’.

Change.org is also not based in New Zealand. So if they do provide you with support, say, to improve the wording of your petition, they can’t help you with on-the-ground support to set up a meeting with an MP to deliver your petition, for example.

The answers to these questions form your campaign plan. It’s your strategy for getting what you want to see done.

Once you have ideas for a campaign to create the change you want to see, you may want to set up a petition to kick-start it. A petition is a great way to build a supporter base around your cause. OurActionStation may be the best place for you to do that, but depending on the issues, the audience, the target or the level of support you need, it may not be either.
