Letter‑writing campaign information - 2015
    PDF of 2015 Letter Writing Campaign Guidelines   page 1

Please consider writing about how corporate power has had an adverse effect on your community. If it doesn't make your letter too long, you can end with a note that the move for a Constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United is gaining momentum and that there will be a public hearing later this spring in Augusta. Send us your letters, too! We would love to read them and post them on our website with your permission.

Thank you!
