How Change.org Is Trying To Give Voters More Power In 2016

Back in 2007, Ben Rattray started a website that he hoped would empower average people to make a difference in the world.

After successful petitions on everything from banking fees to the Trayvon Martin case, the founder and CEO of Change.org is launching a new platform to allow Americans to engage directly with politicians.

Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson talks with Rattray about how he hopes the website ChangePolitics.org will affect the 2016 election.
