If you are inspired to submit a letter during this challenging time, be thoughtful about your tone and topic. See guidance here.
At CCL, we believe people are good and democracy works. Write letters of appreciation for people who are helping, including our members of Congress.
Getting a letter to the editor published in your local paper amplifies your influence because many people will read what you've written. Congressional offices pay close attention to letters to the editor, because it helps them keep their fingers on the pulse of their constituents, districts, and states.
The CCL Community website offers training and suggestions on writing effective letters. Remember to keep the tone respectful and nonpartisan. We're trying to educate people about our solution and influence public opinion. Smart, positive letters that offer hope and a practical way forward are best.
