Anyone can start a new individual petition, anytime.
If you have your own concept for a petition campaign, you can suggest your idea by filling out this form.
While a petition is a single petition, a petition campaign is an overarching effort comprising many “sub-petitions.” For example, a petition campaign to include ME in medical school curricula might include many sub-petitions targeted toward specific institutions. A petition campaign to Congress or Parliament might include sub-petitions targeting specific members. At the end of the signing period, the sub-petitions can be delivered to each individual or institutional target, as can the overarching campaign. The overarching campaign aggregates all of the sub-petition signatures.
