CHICAGO CENTRISTS January meeting – How to write effective Letter To The Editor
• What we’ll do
While apathy has taken hold of most disaffected citizens of Illinois and Chicago, the truth is that more power than ever rests with the people who have the courage to take action. At this meetup, we will walk through a method that has been proven to work throughout history: letters to the editor. The “Letter to the Editor” is one of the most widely read parts of most newspapers and, when done right, can educate, influence, and inspire to action.
We will have a short instruction on how to write an effective “Letter to the Editor.” If you would like, you can then write your own letter encouraging an end to gerrymandering in Illinois or another issue you are passionate about. After that we’ll grab a drink, talk politics, or just hang out nearby. Show up! Bring a friend! Take action to help your city/state/country/planet! Every person can make a difference!
