Here's a sampling of what other bloggers are saying about the new Change.org:
"I can see Change.org becoming a social action site for the more mature crowd who want knowledge before they get involved, and who want to do more than passively sponsor causes through corporate donor widgets. . . . In the interest of moving social action from an online only activity to an offline one, effecting real world change, this lets you tap into a much wider network to find support for your activities and ideas."Have you tried the new Change.org?

"I really like the way the people behind this site provide a centralized space for learning about various causes and then – perhaps more importantly – provide readers with a way to take action. As a busy mom, I have many good intentions about doing things to support the causes I’m passionate about. But, to be perfectly honest, I need an easy way to take action. At this point in my life, I just don’t have the time to volunteer, and I certainly don’t have a lot of expendable cash. Change.org seems to offer a solution that meets my needs."

"If Change.org is going to grow as an online community and a web portal for people searching to get involved in issues and causes, it's going to have to struggle with the same problem we all have when it comes to social change. Beyond giving busy people a five minute action like making a donation or signing a petition or forwarding a message, how do we get salient numbers of people organized in support of actions that have lasting, systemic effects?"
