Engage the media, your community, and Members of Congress by sharing your thoughts in your local or national paper via an opinion editorial (op-ed) or letter to the editor (LTE). Keep it short and write from your own voice about why this issue is so important and/or why it impacts your community. Use NCJW’s #CloseTheCamps Talking Points to help write your piece, and see below for a sample LTE and op-ed.
Here are NCJW resources to help you write an op-ed or LTE:
- Tips for Writing an Op-Ed
- Talk Back: Write and Submit a Letter to the Editor
- Sample Op-Ed
- Sample LTE
Email Stephanie Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org to let NCJW know if you op-ed or LTE is published. You can also contact Stephanie if you need help writing or submitting your piece.
