RESTON, Va., Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The digital media firm Intermarkets, Inc., today announced the launch of StandUnited.org, the first open and free petition platform that allows individuals and organizations to engage and mobilize supporters on issues such as free enterprise, fiscal responsibility, and limited government, among others.
With the combination of cutting-edge digital technology and a large audience of highly-engaged activists, StandUnited is poised to redefine how the petition process can empower citizens, voters, taxpayers, small businesses and other like-minded activists to speak with a unified voice.
"When support for a cause comes in large numbers, decision makers take notice," said Kevin Lucido, Chairman and CEO of Intermarkets. "The Internet has transformed the petition process, so it's now possible to gather support quickly and broadly. Simply put - in a connected world, online petitions get results."
StandUnited also hosts sponsored petitions for advocacy organizations seeking to sign up supporters for their issues and causes. Organizations create petitions on legislative or policy issues, and potential supporters are recruited to sign the petitions via web publishers, email and social media. In addition, StandUnited features direct, real-time message delivery to federal and state legislators.
"Our large and growing publisher audience allows us to engage potential advocates at scale on issues that resonate with them, and this is a tremendous value to advocacy organizations," said Paul Van Remortel, senior product manager of StandUnited. "The success of Care2 and Change.org on the left proves that online activism is mainstream. But –for issues on the other side of political spectrum, the market is underserved. StandUnited is the platform for the Center-Right."
As an open platform, anyone can start a free petition. A sampling of current petitions include efforts to stop the Obama Administration's regulatory overreach at the EPA, rolling back Common Core standards in favor of more local school control and passing the stalled Wounded Warriors Federal Leave Act on Capitol Hill. Additional petitions are added daily, making the platform an excellent gauge for understanding which political, social or cultural issues are resonating the most at any given time.
