Create a Letter-Writing Campaign In Your Area

Letters still have impact on the public and government officials.

 

SET UP LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN TABLES AT EXISTING EVENTS – Make some copies of the sample letters listed below and make them available at Farmer’s Markets, Gardening Events, Food Co-Ops, Health Expos, anyplace community members gather.  Be sure and get permission from event organizers to ask attendees to take time to write letters.  Bring along extra paper and pens.  And a signup sheet so you can keep track of folks who are interested in the issue.

HOLD YOUR OWN EVENTS TO GATHER FOLKS – You can gather folks for the purpose by inviting a speaker, promoting a book study, showing a film or getting people together to discuss environmental health matters.   While they are there, direct them to a table where you offer copies of sample letters and ask folks to write their own.

Be prepared to either mail the letters yourself or provide addressed envelopes so folks can just add a stamp!
