For the unititiated, change.org is a website where people write petitions to pressure companies into doing something.
This can be something totally innocuous, like asking a company to hire a certain actor to play a role, or political,
asking someone to step down from their job or asking a company to change their stance on something.
The problem is, no companies give a shit. I've never seen evidence that a change.org petition has changed anything ever.
In fact, whenever something does change, companies often make statements that the petition had nothing to do with the change. Therefore, change.org is completely worthless.
As an aside, once you sign a petition, they bombard your email with new petitions to sign every week, which is annoying.
