Write your local paper with this letter-to-the-editor generator and save our healthcare
Continuing our coverage of health care in the week leading up to Bernie’s January 15th health care rallies, we wanted to offer you another way to support Obamacare and save the health insurance of 20 million Americans.
Today’s suggestion comes from an advocacy group called UltraViolet, a “community of people from all walks of life mobilized to fight sexism and expand women’s rights.”
UltraViolet has created an online letter-to-the-editor generator that automates the process of writing to your local newspaper. As the group of Congressional staffers behind the Indivisible Guide note, local representatives care deeply about their hometown press and hometown editorials because that’s what their constituents read every day.
The letter generator is incredibly easy to use. Enter your information into their online form, hit submit, and they will find the paper for you, provide you with talking points to help you write, and even send the letter. It’s all inclusive.
The process could not be simpler. It takes literally a matter of minutes, and it’s extremely high-impact. For Republicans that are already feeling the heat because their party has offered no alternative to Obamacare — Republicans like Sens. Tom Cotton, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Rand Paul — bad press can make all the difference. Republicans have a 2 person majority in the Senate, which means we only need to convince 3 Senators to stop the repeal.
Letters to the editor are high-impact and proven to be effective. With this generator, they’re also easier than ever to write. Take 10 minutes now to save the health insurance of 20 million people.
