In 2011, we launched https://storify.com/wethepeople/wtpmeetupWe the People to give Americans a new way to petition their government on the issues they care about. To celebrate its third birthday, we hosted our first-ever meetup for We the People users and petition creators right here at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
On Friday, August 1, President Obama signed a bill into law that again made it legal for consumers to unlock their cell phones. It marked the very first time a We the People petition led to a legislative fix.
We the People is live on WhiteHouse.gov. Check out our new platform that gives all Americans a way to create and sign petitions on a range of issues affecting our nation. If a petition gathers enough online signatures, it will be reviewed by policy experts and you’ll receive an official response.
