2. Write a letter to the editor


Write a letter to the editor of the newspaper in your hometown or region. Letters to the editor are generally 250 words or under. We encourage you to write in your own words and from your personal perspective. Remember that your best justifications are the benefits to your own community. Tell your humanities story and how we’ve made a difference!
