Many of us are looking for ways to influence others—not the 30% who are conservative zealots, but Independents and those who are open to hearing new ideas.

This guide from the Center for Community Change provides an easy-to-follow template for crafting an effective letter or article. It suggests we start with our shared values, then clearly differentiate progressive values from conservative values, and espouse a vision.
