What You Can Do
Write a letter to the editor on an issue you feel passionate about.
Start your own Write2Win group in your district. Writing2Win can be as simple as a few friends working together, or it can be a bolder, more organized effort. However it is organized, it engages other constituents and writers in drafting letters-to-the-editor and op-eds, and posting on social media to improve Democratic candidates’ election chances.
