Write an Article for a Newsletter

Many of us belong to faith-based or community groups that publish newsletters. These small publications are often read with great interest because the readers and writers may know each other personally. To model your own activism (including its difficulties) and to encourage others who share your values to take action, a short (usually 300-600 words) article about a specific action or challenge, such as a stay at the Pink House in DC, or an encounter with local police over freedom of assembly and speech issues. Make it relevant to issues of concern to people in the community, and add a snappy title or a lively anecdote.
