Learn how to write an LTE
Sister Eilis McCulloh, HM, of the Grassroots Mobilization Team, gives a short lesson on how to write an impactful Letter to the Editor. You can use this LTE training for any letter your write to publications in your community.
Below you will see a selection of LTE’s from NETWORK justice-seekers around the country who’ve reached out to publications in their area to advocate for our Build Anew policy agenda and issue areas. We’d love to hear from you after your LTE is published. Please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

This form of policy death would be a public health threat to all Kentuckians.” Read Mary’s letter to the editor of the Messenger-Inquirer below.LETTER TO THE EDITOR -- Owensboro KY
