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.
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!

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:

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.
