What else can I do?

Try writing a letter to the editor of your local paper. The editorial page is one of the most important sections of any newspaper. More people read the “Letters to the Editor” section than many other portions of the newspaper. This is an ideal forum for conveying your message about environmental and public health issues.

Editors of these newspapers wish to publish criticism, praise or feedback to the stories and columns that have recently appeared. Editors are also looking for ideas and facts. By providing your editor with information on your issues, you are helping them to do their jobs. Keep in mind that editors are not required to print your letter, but usually they feel responsible for equitably and accurately depicting all sides of an issue.
