Publications & Reports

A petition is basically a request for action. Collecting signatures demonstrates community support for change or public dissatisfaction with a government policy.

How is a petition useful to advocacy?

Petitions give voice to community concerns on a particular issue, and put forward specific requests to influence government decision- making. There are many online petitions on the internet, but offline petitions can be useful if you want your petition to be officially tabled in Parliament. Your petition can ask the House of Representatives to introduce legislation, or to revoke or amend current laws, or to take action for a certain purpose or for the benefit of a particular people.
