Below:  Health Care For America Now - Important Home Stretch and We Need You!

Your Letter to the Editor Needed! 

Please write a letter to the editor or an op-ed piece for WVCAG's Health Care for America Now campaign to keep health care reform, specifically the creation of a public health care plan, front and center in the public's eye. When the media loses interest, the public loses interest and when this occurs progressive legislation tends to stall. Congress, as you know, is still formulating a public health care option. When specific details are released about the public plan that support HCAN's principles, we will need our supporters to keep the media even more occupied with our cause than they currently are so that we can apply enough pressure on Congress to act on this urgent, most important issue.

The following link will direct you to a website where you can send out a LTE or an op-ed to multiple daily newspapers with just one click

For information on how to write a LTE and templates, please visit http://www.wvcag.org/issues/healthcare/lte_templates.htm.  If you are having writers block and don't know what to write, use one of the templates. We understand!
