Writing to Your Leaders

Believe it or not, letters to your elected representatives make a difference. Postcards might catch someone's attention, and petitions sometimes get noticed, but letters are by far the most effective. Politicians are eager to know what the people think.

Don't worry about composing a long or deeply profound letter. Use the letter to express your concerns and ideas as simply as possible, then send it in. To get more bang for your letter-writing buck, copy the letter and mail it to other local, regional, and national politicians. You can even request to meet with a politician to discuss what the government is doing about climate change.

You can expand your outreach beyond political leaders. Writing to people within your industry, your business, or your children's school, or even writing to your own boss, can lead to profound change.
