Usage Instructions
Many newspapers have an editorial board. The staff members on the editorial board write the newspaper's own opinion pieces (called "editorials") on various topics. These editorials can be very influential on members of Congress.

Editorial packets are a great way to educate your local newspaper's editorial board about the topics of climate change, CCL's work, and Congress's work on climate policy. Specifically, we recommend that you send the packet along with a request to meet with the editorial board. Hopefully, the packet and/or your meeting will result in the newspaper writing an editorial. (Here are some examples of great editorials from newspapers in New YorkWashington, and Florida.)  

The editorial packet below is time-sensitive.

Check out our training materials on "Meeting with Editorial Boards" to learn exactly how you can use this packet to request a meeting and ask your newspaper to write an editorial.
