 Writing Tips and Guidelines

A Letter to the Editor (LTE) is a great way to generate media attention around our campaign issues. This is particularly poignant when organizations share the ways in which past budget allocations have funded beneficial community projects (new affordable housing units, supportive service programs, etc.). Listed here are guidelines for writing an LTE; general messaging and framing for your letters, as well as Homes for All specific talking points to emphasize the importance of statewide funding.

Press Releases

A press release is an excellent way to get the media interested in our events and campaigns. The best press releases are concise and accurate. They are newsworthy, and provide statistics, quotes, and brief information.
