Stand Up For Planned Parenthood: Send Your Letter To The Editor

Did you call your legislator's office, only to find their voicemail full?

Here's another way to make your voice heard: submit a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Even when your member of Congress is in Washington, they are always paying attention to what's in the local papers.

Use our tool below to write a brief letter to the editor of your local newspaper, to express your support for reproductive health and rights. Letters to the editor are typically preferred to be 150-200 words in length. Here are a few tips to help your letter make the most impact:

  • Stick to one basic point, story or message.
  • Be sure to name your legislator. If you need to confirm your legislators name, check it here.
  • The more personal you make your letter, the stronger your communication will be. If you have a personal story about how Planned Parenthood has supported you or a loved one, include the story, using 1-3 sentences.
