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.

One way to do this is to write letters to the editor or to write articles to publish on community blogs or newsletters. 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.

  1. I’m looking for a way to respond to those who insists on trying to engage me and to join in on their enthusiasm for supporting Trump; even after I have made an uncomplimentary comment on their admiration. I know I need to respond not react but I don’t know what to say…..any help for me out there?
