Letters to the Editor
Letters to the Editor (LTEs) are one of the most widely read sections of the newspaper. They are a quick, effective and continuing means of communicating your message to a wide audience. Letters can correct and clarify facts, oppose or support actions of an official agency, direct attention to a problem, spur news editors to cover an issue that is being overlooked, and urge readers to support your cause.
Included in this section is a list of Virginia newspaper contact information.
Annual, mid-year, and quarterly reports highlight our accomplishments in the following areas:
• Building strategic capacity
• Issue campaign highlights
• Involving people in the organizing who are directly affected by the issues
• Leadership development
• Virginia Organizing by the numbers
Of course, all of these elements are interwoven: increased capacity leads to getting more people active, and leadership training results in more campaign successes. While key metrics are listed at the end of the report, the changes people experience while coming together with others to improve life in their communities is immeasurable.
