There are many things you can do from home to let your elected officials know you have concerns. Below are a few suggestions about what you can do to help make a difference.

Write A Letter To The Editor

Letters to the editor are an effective way of speaking to a large group of people, and often get the attention of elected officials. First, you should pick an issue that you feel strongly about. One important thing to remember is that newspapers like to publish letters that have a local tone, so your letter should address how the issue is pertinent to people in your area.

If you need the address for your local paper, check out this site which has links to papers all over the country: www.newslink.org

Call, Write, or Email your Elected Official

Not sure who represents you in Congress or how to get in touch with them? Check out www.congress.org – all you need to know is your zip code!

Organize a letter writing party to get your message across en-masse, or get your friends to send letters via email. Communicating with your elected officials is imperative to the democratic process.
