"Caleb Jonas is a mellow, industrious Harvard graduate student who occasionally signs petitions but had never circulated one. Until two weeks ago. That’s when he learned that a cause close to his heart -- AmeriCorps, the national service program -- was targeted for elimination by House Republicans. Someone told him about Change.org, an online organizing platform to circulate petitions, and he decided to give a Save AmeriCorps campaign a try."
