Writing a letter to the editor is one of the quickest, most effective ways to fight for peace. It allows all of us to comment on the way issues are being addressed in the media and to influence the topics the local paper may choose to cover. Policymakers at every level, from the Mayor’s office to the U.S. Congress, to the White House, closely track newspapers to see what their constituents are saying about them and the news. So let’s make sure that they hear our call of support for removing troops from Afghanistan when they read the paper this month!
After you submit your name and address, simply choose which newspaper you'd like to submit your letter to. Then use the Talking Points below or write your own letter to the editor. Don't forget you can come back here and submit as many letters to as many different papers as you want!
