"Workers' Wages Chasing Corporate Profits," "American Millinoaires: 1,400 Paid No US Income Taxes in 2009," "Making More, Contributing Less" - in the past few weeks, wealth dispaity has made it into some big headlines. It is headlines like these that open the door for your comments and perspectives to be shared in the media in a letter to the editor. This is a great way to help spread the word about the campaign and educate about the wealth gap. Writing letters to local and diocesan papers (as opposed to national newspapers) will increase your chances of getting it published, and will help you reach people in your community.
The letter at the top was published by a Mind the Gap! supporter. Thanks, Rose Mary, and all of you who are starting conversations about the wealth gap in your area. Let us know how your conversations are going by leaving a comment here, or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
