How to Write Your Letters

  1. Use the case sheets and sample letters to write twice on each case: write one letter to the government official listed and write one short note to the person in the case, to give them hope. It is most effective to write your letters by hand and personalize your message–consider adding a sentence about why you care about the case.
  2. Send your letters directly to the addresses listed on each case sheet.
  3. Report your letters so that they are added to the count.
