The White House, Washington
Over the past few years, we've watched closely as millions of people created and signed petitions on our We the People petitions platform. We've responded to our signers on issues from overtime rules, to STEM OPT regulations, to the Syrian refugee crisis.
We've watched how people used the site and have heard some helpful feedback from the community.
Now, we have something exciting to share with you: a new version of We the People.
We the People Redesign
You'll notice that we made a few significant updates -- not just to make more fun and easy to use use, but also because it's our priority to continually evolve our digital products toward the needs and aspirations of our community.
Some things, of course, stayed the same. The threshold for response is still 100,000 signatures. When we respond, we are still going to be candid and honest. And whenever possible, we're going to find ways to engage further: to talk with you directly, to answer questions, and to connect you to ongoing opportunities to learn about and participate in a cause that matters to you.
That's the most exciting element of this platform. Not just the conversations it starts and the real change it can foster, ­but the potential future it points to.
Our hope is that We the People will become an essential tool of civic participation, one that long outlives this administration -- and all of that depends on your continued participation.
So check out the new design, and see if there's anything that sparks your interest.
As part of the redesign rollout, I'll be hosting an open Q&A over on Product Hunt at noontoday. Tune in to ask a question, simply listen to the conversation, or -- best of all -- see how you might get involved. Hope to see you there!

Cyber PR

Let me guess - you want publicity for your music. If you're getting this newsletter, chances are that either you or someone you know makes awesome tunes, and is trying to get them into the ears of tastemakers.
Music publicity DOES NOT have to cost an arm and a leg. Obviously, paying a good music publicist to get you press can be a great investment, and will save you lots of time and work. But if you are just starting out, don't have a big budget, and want to get some publicity on your own, we've got your back.
We put our heads together here at Cyber PR and came up with a 3-part blog series, giving you a thorough rundown of what YOU can do to get good publicity, DIY style.
Part 1 teaches you how to prep your Electronic Press Kit and Signature Story (bio). Part 2 will help you research the perfect music blogs, prep your newsletter, and plan your release schedule. Part 3 (click the graphic below) gets into the nitty gritty of pitching to music blogs and getting results! Read on...

We hope that this series is helpful for you. Take a look, ask us questions in the comments section, and then go kick some publicity butt!

Here's to your success!
Love, Ariel

Organizing for Action
 
On Earth Day this Friday, more than 150 countries will sign the Paris Agreement, a crucial step forward in the fight against climate change. That breaks the record for the number of countries signing an international agreement on an opening day.

That's progress worth celebrating -- but we can't slow down in pushing for meaningful climate action on the local and state level. The Paris Agreement is just one example of the achievements that are possible when we work together to tackle climate change.

This week, OFA volunteers are organizing climate events in communities all over the country. Can you make it to an event?

Here are the details:

What: Earth Day Action Event

Where: 441 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

When: Tuesday, April 26ᵗʰ
6:00 pm

RSVP now

Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate change is real and manmade. And it's not some far-off, abstract problem -- communities all over the country are already experiencing its effects with a higher frequency of extreme weather events like storms, droughts, and heat waves. This your chance to speak up for critical action.

Attending a local event is a great opportunity to get involved and make a difference on an issue that matters to you -- and one that will matter to future generations for decades to come.
