This is just one in a series of updates that aim to take grassroots activism to the next level. Over the course of the next year, StandUnited will roll out additional improvements that will make effecting change at the local, state and federal levels through online petitions easier and more effective than ever.
Since launching in 2015, StandUnited has hosted more than 1,000 petitions that have together earned more than 730,000 signatures. Their Facebook page has surpassed 1 million likes and continues to grow following the addition of one-click signing. Top organizations such as the Republican National Committee, Judicial Watch, Americans for Tax Reform, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have adopted the StandUnited platform for their petitions.
Successful national campaigns petitioned Congress to repeal the Medical Device Tax created under ObamaCare, reject new trade agreements that harmed American workers, and demand that Hillary Clinton turn over her private email server, among others. At the state level, grassroots activists in Portsmouth, Va., used the StandUnited platform to successfully save the city's Confederate War Memorial. More recently, a StandUnited petition was victorious in declaring President Obama's executive actions on immigration unconstitutional, following a Supreme Court decision to block those plans.
Other popular campaigns have included petitions to support term limits for Congress, to reform the criminal justice system, to honor first lady Nancy Reagan, to fight the federal takeover of education and oppose Common Core, to build the Keystone Pipeline.
