Description
Resource to help volunteers write letters to the editor (LTEs) about climate change, climate policy, and CCL's work.
Usage Instructions

A letter to the editor (LTE) is a short piece, usually 150 to 200 words, that you can send in to your local newspaper to be published. An LTE offers your own perspective or commentary on a topic. It's a good idea to have someone in your CCL chapter regularly monitor your local newspaper(s) for pieces that relate to climate change and present good opportunities to write LTEs. 

If you need some help crafting your letter, here's the link to CCL's LTE Tool and here's a list we've put together of suggested topics that might help:
