White House Petitions API

The First Amendment guarantees Americans the right to petition their government, and the White House’s petition platform also grants them the ability to analyze, visualize, and view petition data. The We The People application programming interface (API) lets users access the catalog of about 350,000 petitions and get the full text along with signature counts, whether the petition earned a response, and other data. The data is also available for bulk download. Several projects have already made use of the API, including an analytics dashboard for petitions and a tool to conduct sentiment analysis on petition text.

Get the data.
