The following is a list of links to help you get started on your letter writing campaign. The best advice for letter writing is to write about your own personal experience- what you know and what you feel. It is more important to say what it is you really want to say than to have perfect grammar. Remember, the elected representatives work FOR YOU, and a letter to the paper is a letter to your friends and neighbors.
