RESTON, Va., July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- StandUnited, a digital petition platform for supporters of individual liberty, free enterprise and limited government, has garnered more than 2 million signatures from all of their online petitions.
"It's very exciting to reach this milestone just two years after launching," said Paul Van Remortel, senior product manager at Intermarkets, StandUnited's parent company. "StandUnited has just scratched the surface of grassroots action on a broad range of issues. It's a community where activists can gather and find like-minded supporters for their cause. We're thrilled our community has grown so rapidly."
Since launching in 2015, StandUnited has hosted more than 1,500 petitions that together have reached the 2 million signature mark. 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.
Signatures on StandUnited petitions have led to victories both locally and nationally. Recent local victories include persuading the Davenport, IA city council to allow a church to keep feeding the homeless, and convincing a New Jersey high school to reprint its yearbooks after Trump logos and text were censored.
Nationally, successful petitions pushed Macy's to continue selling Ivanka Trump's fashion line even as other large companies dropped the brand, and CNN to remove comedian Kathy Griffin from her role as co-host of the network's New Year's Eve programming after pictures emerged of her holding a prop severed head appearing to be President Donald Trump.
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 to build the Keystone XL pipeline.
