Change.org, along with MySpace and other partners, has launched a new campaign called Ideas for Change in America. They are asking you to submit your idea for an innovative solution to change America, as well as vote for others ideas you like. The first round of voting will end on December 31, 2008.
The top three ideas in each category (there are almost 30 categories) that receive the most votes will make it to the second round of voting starting January 5, 2009 and ending on January 15.
The top 10 ideas will be presented to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day, and will be supported by a national lobbying campaign run by Change.org, MySpace, and more than a dozen other nonprofits after the Inauguration.
I just submitted my idea:
Make Things That Are "Public" Cool
Obama said that he wants to make politics cool. I hope he'll make funding, supporting, and using "public" services like education, transportation, parks, libraries and broadcasting cool too.
You can vote for my idea by clicking on the button above, or voting on Change.org.
