Florida Forever Writing Campaign Info and Tips

We are asking members of Apalachee Audubon to join us in writing letters to our elected representatives, requesting that the Florida Forever funds we voted to be used for land acquisition to...be used for land acquisition.

Here are some points to consider when drafting your letter:

  • A short letter is better than no letter at all.
  • Be personal. Share examples of how this will effect you, and your family.
  • If you cite facts, back them up.
  • Tie environmental issues back to economics and jobs. 
  • State that you plan to talk to others and spread the word about this issue among other constituents. 
  • Sending a letter is better than an email, but both can be effective. 
  • You may not receive an original response, but that does not mean that your letter had no impact.
