Contact Local Media

“Writing a letter to the editor (LTE) or an op-ed is a great way to energize branch members, promote AAUW visibility in the community, and spread the word about important issues. These media outreach tools can be used to correct and clarify facts in a previous news story, oppose or support the actions of an elected official or agency, direct attention to a problem, spur news editors to cover an issue that is being overlooked, or urge readers to support your cause.AAUW Advocacy Toolkit

In support of an AAUW issue, contact newspapers or media outlets to submit a Letter to the Editor or Opinion piece. Contact if you would like co-authorship by the state public policy director, subject matter expert, research support or other assistance.
