Cheryl McNamara – Conflict and Climate: Changing Course NOW!

Cheryl McNamara was a guest speaker discussing “Letter-to-Editor Writing for Smarties” at our conference on Sunday November 9, Conflict and Climate: Changing Course NOW!

McNamara is from the Citizen’s Climate Lobby. She shared the importance of writing to your local news sources and responding to current affairs, and also reminded us of the need to write to Canadian politicians and hold them accountable. McNamara informed attendees of the hierarchy of letter-to-the-editor opportunities, of the importance of being creative in your writing, and of being succinct. She gave the step-by-step directions on how to open, state a message, propose a solution, and close an op-ed.

Thank you Cheryl McNamara for attending our conference.
