Having a robust team of active volunteers is critical to our success and continued progress. Advocates who contact lawmakers, participate on social media, write letters to the editor, or show up for hearings, lobby days and other legislative efforts in support of expanding end-of-life options are vital to the movement. Writing letters is still one of the best ways to register your support for (or opposition to) a piece of public policy. You can contribute to the conversation with a letter to the editor, which virtually all media outlets publish in print and online regularly. This toolkit offers you some basics and best practices for writing letters to the editor as well as to your local, state and federal elected officials.
