Here are some ideas to help you organize letter writing sessions at your meeting, church or group or to encourage Friends to write at home.
Join FCNL’s monthly letter writing project
If your meeting, church, or community group is interested in letter writing on a monthly basis, FCNL produces a monthly letter writing kit. The kit includes a quick summary of a particular issue and gives advice on who to write and what to say.
Set up a letter writing table
Setting up a table after worship service or a meeting can spur people to sit down and write. The table should be clearly marked and equipped with paper, pens, stamps, envelopes, postcards, and information sheets (letter writing kits or articles you put together). Have on hand the addresses of the people in Congress or the administration you are writing.
Promote letter writing
When people get back positive letters or positively influence a congressperson’s vote, report that information. It can really boost enthusiasm. A letter writing table or event is an easy and social way to get people involved, but you may also want to encourage people to write letters individually. Consider including weekly or monthly letter writing information in your meeting or church newsletter or announcements.
