Help us promote the People’s Pledge by sending a letter to the editor to your local paper.

The sooner you send it in, the better!

When your letter is printed, send a link to us at peoplespledge2014@citizen.org.

If you get really ambitious and want to send letters to more than one paper — a Texas activist like you had a letter printed in three papers — be sure to make each letter unique to each paper.

In your letter, remember to call on your fellow citizens to contact all the candidates, regardless of their political party.

Thank you for helping. Together, we’ll take big money out of our democracy and get voters back in.

Step 1 - Select a Recipient

Letter to the Editor

The Letter to the Editor Section is one of the most widely read sections of the newspaper and can reach a large audience. It allows community members to comment on the way issues are being addressed in the media and to influence the topics the local paper may choose to cover. Elected officials often monitor this section of the newspaper and take notice of constituents' opinions.

We've made it easy for you to contact your local newspaper with your views, but editors want to hear from you in your own words.
