Writing Letters

  1. Pick a topic
  2. Write a letter. You can also write your Congressmen or Senators directly through their websites and mailed via paper and stamp to their office.  I would suggest when you compose a letter that you do both; submit it to newspapers and your elected representatives. 
  3. Send on a Thursday for the following week
  4. Submit to all four newspapers (see below)

Suggested topics: 

  • Jobs and the economy
  • Education 
  • Energy and the environment
  • Climate change 
  • Equal rights and voting
  • National security 
  • Health care  
  • Taxes 
  • Women’s health
  • Reasons you support the Democrats?
  • Money and politics
  • Social Justice
  • Other

Most of the papers will let you write one letter a month.  Stick to the issues.  Have someone else read it before you send it out. Let’s elevate the discussion!
