Write Letters to the Editor
“Letters to the editor and opinion pieces are very powerful advocacy tools. The editorial section of a newspaper is widely read by the public and is monitored by elected officials. In a letter to the editor or opinion piece, you can bring up information not addressed in a news article, and can create the impression of widespread support or opposition to an issue.” – NCTE
