Campaigns by You: one million signatures!
By Rebecca Falcon
Let’s celebrate! Campaigns by You has reached one million signatures across its petitions. Quite simply, it could never have happened without you.
An amazing number of people have got involved and achieved some extraordinary things with Campaigns by You so far. But what does a million signatures look like?
Here’s just a taster of what we’ve accomplished together with Campaigns by You’s first 1,000,000 signatures:
We blocked plans for a nuclear waste dump in the Lake District
We kept bus travel free for school pupils in Staffordshire
We made sure climate change wasn’t scrapped from the curriculum
We saved science museums across the North of England
We helped keep Chelsea and Westminster A&E open
And we stopped Tesco taking over a historic air raid shelter and destroying woodland in Halstead.
Phew! Incredible stuff.
38 Degrees is entirely member funded. We never take money from big business or political organisations. The Campaigns by You website exists because of 38 Degrees members who chip in by Direct Debit each month.

Are you feeling inspired? Now it’s up to you to lead the next million people with campaigns that will shape our local areas, and challenge our politicians to stand up for what’s right. Click here to get started.
Campaigns by You has only been around for just over a year, achieving all of this so far is incredible. Here’s to the next twelve months.
