Writing an LTE is one of the quickest, most effective ways to build power for peace. It allows people to influence and comment on the topics their local papers cover, as well as how these issues are being addressed in their communities.
Policymakers at every level, from the Mayor’s office to the U.S. Capitol and the White House closely track newspapers to see what their constituents are saying. Let’s make sure that everyone in our communities, including our legislators, knows that we need Congress to do all they can to support diplomacy — NOT sabotage it!
After you submit your name and address, simply choose which newspaper you'd like to submit your letter to. Then, use the Talking Points, tips, and sample letter to write your own LTE. Don't forget you can come back here and submit as many letters to as many different papers as you want.
Sometimes peace just needs an extra push — can you help us spread the word?
