One of the most effective ways to communicate about the need to transform the healthcare system is by writing and submitting letters to the editor of our local media. Letters allow us to reach a wide audience, educate our communities, and inspire others to join the movement for healthcare for all. We also know that elected officials watch closely when their name is in print. With letters, we can let them know what we want them to do.
