Put a Public Spotlight on the Dangers of Gutting Science-Based Safeguards in Your Newspaper
The deceptively-named "Regulatory Accountability Act" (RAA), which would cripple the science-based system of creating vital health and safety protections, will likely be introduced in the Senate soon. If this bill becomes law, there will be real consequences on the ability of federal agencies to tackle pressing problems and keep the American public healthy and safe.
Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper to inform your state about this attack on science.
Writing a letter to the editor (LTE) is an effective and easy way to reach a large audience with your message. LTEs are printed on the editorial page, which is one of the most read pages in the paper. Decision makers keep a close eye on media coverage, including LTEs, in their local papers so they can keep a 'pulse' on issues of importance to their constituents. Having a strong letter published helps you reach both a wide public audience and your elected officials at the same time!
