Possible question: how approach during election season?
(because they are extra busy, lots of things going on)
I love Jerry's story of the minimal meals and then his mother coming home with bags of groceries. Thank you.
What is your advice when you submit media consistently and do not get published?
Sometimes, we hesitate to send our letters because they aren’t perfect… Comment on this?
Me is Willie Dickerson
To Yolanda: Just keep sending! Took me eight tries to get into one newspaper…
Colin has some good suggestions about alternative papers too (college, local African-American press, nearby towns or statewide...)
that’s perfect terry
For a “toss-up” state, how do we frame a completely, ever encompassing LTE that all—potential—readers are able to acknowledge? Given we are non-partisan, how can we assure we grab the attention of all readers, not solely our “ideal” audience?
Hi Andrew, this is Jos. I think you try to frame it in a way that makes is hard for people to argue against. For example, it's hard for anyone to legitimately argue that kids should go hungry, so you can use that as your focus in talking about the importance of SNAP in helping kids stay healthy.
dummy me but where can I see the congressional score card on domestic issues
Hi Betsy. On this page under Policy Info. https://www.results.org/skills_center/2018_international_conference_resources
please share local data
Speaking from our AZ group, we have a “lame-duck” Senator and a “vacant” seat. Ought we frame it to those select few in our LTE’s or for all readers? We cannot “campaign” but we can do something. What does this “something” look like?
As of today, can do a "with Senator Kyl returning to Congress, he can support bipartisan efforts to protect food assistance"
or perhaps focus and specifically name your two Senate candidates (which will pay dividends short-term since they are in the House, and longer term)
thanks Colin for putting the call out to write about supporting the media, I loved your shout out
