Change.org seeks the top 10 ideas for change in America: you can vote.


Remember that Change.org is a social action network of the new web 2.0 which aims to use the World Wide Web as the central platform to inform and empower movements for a positive social change all over the world. This site which is oriented towards social problems and collective action allows us to contact with people who seek social welfare beyond racial, idiomatic or idiological barriers.

This morning change.org has opened the voting process for the last round of the competition “Ideas for change in America.”

The competition was launched in partnership with more than 50 leading organizations from the third sector, including MySpace, in response to Barack Obama's call for increased civic participation in America. The idea submission window closed on December 31, 2008, and the top rated ideas from a total of 7,783 were classified for the second and final voting round.

This second part finished on January 15; afterwards, change.org organized an event at the National Press Club to announce the top 10 rated ideas and submit them to the Obama Administration and then lauch a national campaign to ensure that each winning idea gets the full consideration of the new Government and the 111th Congress.

To choose your “Top 10 Ideas for America”, go to www.change.org/ideas and take part of this citizen-driven project which seeks for change in America.
