SIGN THE PETITION
Please sign the petition in support for our aims to put Citizen Initiatives / People-Initiated Referenda into the Irish Constitution.
A change in Irish politics is therefore necessary. A rebalancing of political power is required in order to rebuild the people’s shattered confidence in government, which has in the past been all too readily abused by politicians, parties, public servants and lobbyists.

We believe everyone can help us bring about a change that will benefit us all and future generations. We also believe this is a campaign that fits all. You just need to decide where you fit in. Please show your support and take a second to let us know.
You support the 1Yi objective - A political system that empowers Irish citizens to veto/block poor legislation and also initiate new legislation using Citizen Initiatives.
You will encourage support for the 1Yi objective such as recommending others consider our objective and the benefits of Citizen Initiatives as a feasible way forward.
You will make it happen. You can commit to volunteering some of your time, energy and skills to organise meetings, discussions or perhaps talking to or emailing local TDs. You will also have a vital role in the decision-making of the campaign.

USE THE LOGO - It's Yours
The 1Yi process for political change does not belong to anyone. It is simply a process that is receiving public and cross-political support to provide citizens with a constitutional process to petition and trigger a referendum. If you support this goal, please feel free to use the logo on your social media pages or email or perhaps you'd like to print it on a badge or a tee-shirt or sweater. We have attached the logo in different formats to choose from. If you'd like a different format, just send us an email and let us know.
We believe there is one opportunity to influence Irish politics and begin changing the political system. We are asking you to support this campaign and use the 1YI process to implement change. If you have any enquires about the 1Yi campaign, please feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations to help us build public awareness of the initiative are not accepted at this time. Everyone directly involved in actively supporting the initiative do so on a voluntary basis. We may accept donations at some point in the future to go directly towards producing and distributing information.
