We The People

For this week’s episode of BTR Pulse, host Lauren Hawker hit NYC streets to ask folks whether they know about the White House’s recently launched online petitions tool called “We the People.” As its name implies, the site allows for anyone with an internet connection the ability to officially exercise his/her right to petition and speak up on behalf of important issues like America’s public schools or the legalization of marijuana. We also look into how active and involved petitioners are as compared to the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Featured Song: “Kiss Me” by Tom Waits
