What Is a Petition Letter?
A Petition Letter is a form that is written to an organization or a person who has authority with a request for or against certain actions. Check out our library below to download printable Petition Letter templates and samples.
The main feature of the letter is that it is supported and signed not by one but by multiple people. The more people support the petition the faster it will have an effect. Sometimes a certain number of signatures are required for the petition to be considered by people of influence but every person has the right to write a Petition Letter. The letter can be written on behalf of a project head or on behalf of a group of people (an organization).

- Sample Petition Letter. This document will be useful whether you decide to build your own request around it or utilize the template for reference - if you, for example, need to confront your college or university and complain about the unfair dismissal, send this message to the employee in charge of admissions to challenge the decision.
