One of the best ways to make an impact is by starting and signing petitions.
Petitions are used to raise awareness about causes in order to request immediate action; usually the passing or repealing of a law. Petitions, however, are not just addressed to lawmakers. They can be addressed to governments, companies, and even private entities.
Petitions are a great start to making an impact in your community or country and there are a number of websites available for you to start one or take it slow and sign one.
