"Petitions pertaining to such diverse issues as censorship and students' rights are presented for users' signatures, and users are encouraged to help revise these petitions and suggest new issues for inclusion on the site in the forums."

"With the threat of additional government regulation looming over the horizon and corporations increasingly using their massive financial resources to diminish individual rights, the need to organize and unite the Internet community to effectively combat these threats has never been greater. While organizations such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation have been established with this purpose in mind, their size and top-down methodology does not allow the average Internet user to significantly influence the policy of the organization. eActivism.org was designed to allow all users the opportunity to directly influence eActivism.org's policy by determining which issues to act upon and how how to respond to them, as a community."

"The issues initially presented on eActivism.org were culled from articles on the web's most popular technology news sites. "I became frustrated with the fact that nobody has taken the issues presented in these forums and attempted to unite as a community to address them," said Lenny Grover, eActivism.org's 18 year old founder. Petitions pertaining to such diverse issues as censorship and students' rights are presented for users' signatures, and users are encouraged to help revise these petitions and suggest new issues for inclusion on the site in the forums."
