Getting Action: Building Support, What to Do After You File

The media can perform an important role in the administrative petitioning process. Through the news media, you can inform the public about the problem you are trying to address and mobilize public support.

Filing your petition is the culmination of your research, organizing, coalition building, solution crafting, and writing. Filing launches your official request for change. But your work is not over. It is essential to recognize your accomplishment and immediately begin to follow through with the next steps.
