In collaboration with the Door County Civility Project and the League of Women Voters of Door County, Write On presents a series of sessions designed to give you effective strategies to communicate your requests, opinions, and concerns with your elected representatives. This is not just about voicing strong opinions through letters to editors, it’s much, much more! As important as what you do, how you do it can make a huge difference regarding whether or not your message is really listened to, read, and understood to make the impact you want.
Today’s session will focus on writing about environmental issues.
While you will learn quick tips on how best to be heard by elected officials, you’ll also have time to identify an issue of concern, who you want to influence, and what you want to accomplish. Then, you will begin a draft of communication to an elected representative — script for a phone call, postcard, email, or letter to an official or to the editor to inform the public of your concern.
There are several sessions in this series offering the same information in different communities. You may attend one or more sessions. Sessions are free but registration is required so that we may properly prepare materials. To register online click here, for other options call 920.868.1457.
