#NeverAgain: Write a letter to the editor

Writing letters to a newspaper or magazine is a powerful activism tool. 

In the age of effortless internet commenting, a published letter will receive a lot more attention than a comment, and be taken much more seriously. 

If you mention your elected official in a published letter, they will definitely see it; a letter can have as much impact as dozens of calls, all without picking up the phone! 

A letter with your name on it will activate your community and get your network talking - “did you see what Rebecca wrote in the paper?” 

And the amount of attention an issue receives from readers will directly impact how much a resource-strapped newspaper decides to cover that issue.

Submit your letter here and it will automatically be sent to the publications you choose. Click a sample letter below for text you can copy and paste into your letter to the editor.
