Letters-to-the-Editor could be very effective,
especially if they carry a lot of proven LOCAL
data from agency monitoring reports, actual
permits, and the EPA's Toxic Release Inventory.
Short and unemotional letters work best --- "Just the Facts."
Funny or ironic analogies also work. We try to avoid
personal or nasty digs.
It's also important to acknowledge worker safety and
health issues, and to let workers know we're not trying to
destroy the economy or throw them out of work.
Tens of thousands of people can be reached all at
once. I think it's one of the most effective
(and cheap) education tools available.
We have a statewide list of papers we send
occasional letters to --- and a significant
percentage DO print the letters if the topic has
We would be happy to participate in a national
monthly letter effort.
