Bay Area: Letter To The Editor Writing Workshop

CURB’s media team has developed a Letter to the Editor Training, to help facilitate the creation of our Letter to the Editor Response Team. The first training will be in the Bay Area! 

Letters to the editor are a quick and easy way to influence reporters, editorial boards and public opinion and a great way to practice our arguments and talking points.

Justice Now is graciously hosting the first training at their office in downtown Oakland as part of their summer brown bag series.  All CURB members are invited and welcome to participate. Please join us on Friday, July 18 from 1pm-2:30pm.  We’ll send a reminder, materials and the agenda prior to the training to all folks who RSVP.

If you are interested in setting up a Letter to the Editor training with your organization or in your area please contact Oliver (oliver@curbprisonspending.org) and he’ll work with the media team to set something up.

For those interested in attending, please bring in an interesting or relavent article you would like to respond to at the training.

RSVP HERE!
