I am Ben Rattray, founder of Change.org, the world’s biggest social change platform. Ask me anything.
I’m a fan of the impact that Reddit has had on the world and excited to answer your questions about Change.org, which I founded back in 2007.
(Proof it's me: https://twitter.com/brattray/status/468811851900284928)
Change.org is the world’s biggest social change platform – where 22-year-old Molly Katchpole convinced Bank of America to remove billions in potential debit card fees; where teens and parents teamed up to end the ban on gay kids in the Boy Scouts, and where 25 million people have experienced victory by signing a petition that went on to win.
We believe it’s possible to build a technology company focused on social impact, and we’re proud to be part of the B Corp movement. Ask me anything!
UPDATE: I've got about 10 minutes left before I need to head into a meeting. These questions are really thought-provoking. I'll try to quickly answer a couple more before I leave.
UPDATE 2: This was great – I often say that people involved in technology (as I know a lot of Redditors are) have greater potential for impact than any past generation, and its been great to see the impact the Reddit community has had on the world.
