Send an Op-Ed or Letter to the Editor in Your Community | CARE Action Toolkit

One of the best ways to influence and educate a wide audience outside your immediate circles is to write and submit an Opinion Editorial (op-ed) or Letter to the Editor (LTE) in your local newspaper. When that LTE or op-ed ties in with CARE’s mission and advocacy agenda, you multiply the power of our work while educating readers on their personal power to affect global change.
