Customer Engagement Manager, NationBuilder

Alex Stevens manages NationBuilder's digital communications and customer engagement marketing program. Before that, he was a Senior Community Strategist, responsible for account managing customers of all sizes, with a focus on folks using NationBuilder for progressive issue advocacy.

Prior to joining NationBuilder in 2014, Alex was a co-founding organizer of 99Rise (now Democracy Spring) where he served as national Online Organizing Coordinator; co-founder and Engagement Editor at Youngist, a youth-led indy media outlet; and a Strategic Nonviolence Trainer at the Center for the Working Poor. He's also worked on several candidate campaigns — but that wasn't really his jam.

Alex is a native of Denver and a graduate of Occidental College. He’s also a lapse slam poet, house music head, and fan of civil resistance flotsam & cyber-cultural jetsam.

1) NationBuilder actually integrates with a super-awesome 3rd party app that provides this very user-submitted petition functionality! It’s called ControlShift, and you can check it out here:

2) Another workaround that I’ve seen some folks implement is to use feedback forms as ‘petition submission’ forms, which after vetting/cleanup, the nation owner then converts into a ‘user submitted petition’ using an actual petition page. That’s what NationOfChange did here:

Hope that helps!
