Write a Letter to the Editor - It's time to end the war in Afghanistan
Just 3 easy steps!
Follow the instructions below and enter in your information where prompted. We have included a sample letter that you can edit as you wish.
Remember, the most powerful tool you have is your own story! The best letters, and the most likely to be published, are short (under 250 words), well written, and include a personal story. To include information on how much your community has contributed to the war and what else that money could have paid for, go to the National Priorities Project Trade-Offs Database
Tips for adding your own story and editing the letter:
- - Click anywhere in the letter to edit
- - Please include only plain text (no html)
- - Include the most important or compelling points of your story and write them in a concise way that relates to the rest of the letter. For example "I'm proud of my son for volunteering for the Army. But after 3 tours and missing the birth of his son, I wonder, was it worth it?"
- - Include your Congressperson's name by calling on them to do everything they can to bring our troops home. Every time your Congressperson's name is in the paper, especially their local paper, their staff notices. This is a great way to put pressure on them. Click here to find your Congressperson.
