Encourage your governor to stand up for bees. Decision-makers read their local papers, so please write a letter to the editor of a newspaper in your state using the tool we've provided below.

Writing a letter to the editor is easy!

  • Your personal words matter most. One personalized letter explaining your individual perspective, experience and knowledge is worth more than 100 duplicate letters.
  • Your letter can (and should) be brief. Most newspapers will accept letters up to 150 words in length.
  • Your letter shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes. We've provided some copy points to help get you thinking. You can submit through your local paper's website, or use the tool at the bottom of this page.

Please let us know if your letter is published by sending it to kayleigh@environmental-action.org.
