A petition is a request to do something, most commonly addressed to a government official or public entity. Petitions to a deity are a form of prayer called supplication.

Past Disability Related Petitions:
Health Care Reform Must Eliminate Wait lists and Allow for the Continuation/Portability of Services Across State Lines - Submitted to the President of the United States and Congress.
To The US Government - Sponsored By: Social Security Disability Coalition
Money is taken out of your paychecks every week for Social Security, and SSD and as of January 2003 the US government GAO has designated Social Security Disability a HIGH risk area for 2003. You could face homelessness, bankruptcy and even death trying to get your benefits when you need them the most. On behalf of the Social Security Disability Coalition we ask, disabled and healthy Americans alike, that you please do something to fix this serious problem now!
Petition calling for the Government to keep Disability Living Allowance mobility component for people in residential care
Disability Living Allowance (DLA) mobility component helps meet some of the extra costs disabled people can face getting around, for example, taxis (where there is no accessible public transport), electric wheelchairs and mobility aids. However, the Government plans to stop paying DLA mobility to people living in residential care and this will mean that many people will no longer have the money to meet these extra costs and face being trapped at home.
