Getting a letter to the editor published

Letters to the editor are fundamental to media for advocacy. They are quick to write and relatively easy to get published. Most importantly, members of Congress read the letters to the editor from their local paper every single day.


Getting an op-ed published

An op-ed or commentary piece gives you more space to make the case for your issue. If you can land an op-ed in your local paper with a clear call to action, your member of Congress is sure to see it.


Meeting with your local editorial board

Editorials represent the view of your local paper, and carry lots of weight on Capitol Hill. Meeting face-to-face with your editorial board is the best way to develop a relationship and support them to take on the issues you care about.
