Writing letters is empowering - and has a big impact on your MoCs!


Letters to MoCs

Letters to MoCs are great because:

  1. You have time to formulate your thoughts without feeling the pressure of doing it while talking to a person on the phone
  2. Your position on an issue is documented
  3. A staffer has to take time to respond to your letter
  4. The response to your letter gives you intel on your MoC's talking points for future reference

Letters to Editors

Letters to Editors are great because:

  1. You reach a wide audience, which means
  2. Your MoC takes notice
  3. You get to present your talking points without an immediate rebuttal
  4. Your friends can share your letter, reaching an even wider audience, which means
  5. Your MoC takes notice
  6. IndivisibleNOCO can tweet your letter, reaching an even wider audience, which means
  7. Your MoC takes notice


Make sure you let IndivisibleNOCO know when one of your letters is published so we can share with our members and retweet the link to the letter.

 

We should all be submitting letters as often as possible.  For example - you can submit one letter every 30 days to the Coloradoan.
