The Peace and Justice Action League is looking for individuals who would like to join our Media Action Team. This Media Action Team will consist of authors who would like to write letters to the editor for causes that PJALS focuses on. These letters will be submitted to The Spokesman-Review as well as other area publications. The goal of this action team is to get more progressive voices out in the Spokane community.
Letters to the editors are great in allowing the author to reach a larger audience and create an impression of widespread support for or opposition to an issue. They are also great because most elected officials monitor the letter to the editor sections and the information is usually not addressed elsewhere in a news article.
PJALS is currently looking for authors who are interested in writing letters on the issue of getting cuts to wasteful Pentagon spending, while also demonstrating public opposition to cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security.
If you are interested in being a part of this Media Action Team and would like to write on this topic or any other topic of interest to you get in contact with Justin Filla at (509)838-7870 or by email at [email protected]
