Have you ever wondered what happens when you sign a petition? Does someone get notified? Does it really help?

SIGNATURES CAN SAVE LIVES: Since the founding of Animal Equality in 2006, we have been using petitions to draw attention to injustices to help bring them to an end and create new laws that protect animals. We rely on the signatures of thousands of supporters in our petitions. In 2016, Animal Equality launched our Corporate Outreach and Campaigns department to bring about systemic change for millions of animals when we convince large companies, such as Burger King and Hilton Hotels, to implement higher standards for animals in their supply chains such as banning confinement in cages.

WHAT DO WE DO WITH PETITION SIGNATURES: A large number of signatures on a petition helps us to put even more pressure on a company executive or political authority, as it shows that thousands of people, for example, also believe in the importance of the issue we are challenging. Some petitions, such as those in our Meal Kit Cruelty campaign, will send an email to target employees at the company each time it is signed, putting even more pressure on them to do better for animals.
