Letters to the editor are an effective way to make the case for impeachment at the local and national level. Newspapers that receive letters to the editor focusing on impeachment will signal to editors that impeachment is an important topic to cover. Additionally, when letters to the editor also highlight and mention your local Representative, that also ensures that the Member of Congress’s will likely see your letter in the daily press clippings they read. It’s an important way to keep the drumbeat up and help educate the public about Donald Trump’s many impeachable offenses. Since these letters can be so effective in making the case for impeachment, we have provided these materials to make it easier for you to send in your letters.
