Letters to the editor are a great way to engage local media and raise awareness about our efforts to get rid of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” A particularly effective letter to the editor can get thousands of people talking about the issue and have effects well beyond the pages of the paper. The letters to the editor section is one of the most read parts of a newspaper! Remember to keep your letter short (typically between 150 and 250 words) and personalize it whenever possible. If you have a personal connection to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” go ahead and mention it.
