Write a Letter to Your Elected Officials
Oprah.com | January 01, 2006
You can make the biggest impact by writing your elected officials and asking them for change. Use these suggestions to get started.
Mention up front that you are a constituent (i.e., you live in their district).
Be specific. Discuss specific legislation or steps your elected officials can take to combat climate change and let them know you are watching their actions.
Keep it short.
Use a collaborative, rather than accusatory, tone. We must build partnerships to create change.
Look beyond just state or national elected leaders. Your list of officials could include:
City council representatives
Leaders of professional associations
