Three things you can do right now to help ensure our message is heard at Monday’s Town Hall Meeting
We will have a strong media presence at the Town Hall on Monday. Local media will be there and there might be some national news outlets. We want our voices amplified by the media—not those that support a regressive agenda. Here’s what you can do to help ensure that our message is broadcast:
(1) Make it personal.
Write and submit your personal story on how the policies of Trump and Rep. Yoho will impact you.
We know that the idea of writing an effective story can feel overwhelming, but that’s why we’re here. We can help. If you want help or just a little coaching, please let us know ASAP. We have a whole writing team that can help you.
(2) Encourage your friends and family.
Also, encourage your friends and family to write their stories—even if they think that it’s too similar to everyone else’s. We want to dispel that myth. Everyone’s story is unique to them. We all have our own perspective. Moreover, in this case, numbers count. Tens, hundreds, or thousands of constituents telling Rep. Yoho that his policies, his votes, his actions will hurt the people that he has sworn to protect—well, that is our way as residents of influencing him.
(3) Write a Letter to the Editor.
Finally, letters to the editor remain important. If you’re concerned that your letter won’t be published before the town hall, don’t be concerned. We need a steady stream of people writing to our local media and telling them what concerns our community. Trust us, this has an effect on local, state, and national politics.
Please don’t hesitate to ask us for help. You can email our writing team at firstname.lastname@example.org, comment on this blog post, or reach us via Facebook in our private group and/or our public Facebook fan page. We’re here for you. We stand INDIVISIBLE.
