Help Spread the Good Word!

One of the most cost effective and far reaching ways to spread the word about our cause is to get Op-Eds or Letters to the Editor published highlighting our unjust status and our pursuit of statehood. With the 4th of July on the horizon now is the perfect time to get pieces published in papers around the country. Here are examples of what’s been published in the past in Connecticut, Florida, Wisconsin, Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. Please write or ghostwrite an Letter to the Editor or Op-Ed for a state where you have friends and family. Right now we’d like to prioritize CA, CT, ME, MI, MN, OR, RI, and VA, but all states count! Our goal is to add House & Senate cosponsors to the respective statehood bills (HR 1291 & S 1278).

Please let us know if you are willing to draft an Letter to the Editor/Op-Ed for a particular state and newspaper and/or if you can convince a friend or family member in one of those states to submit it for us. Send us an email at unitedforstatehood@gmail.com if you want information on elected officials in each state. Here’s a statehood fact sheet and FAQ sheet that can help you craft a more effective and powerful Op-Ed. Here’s a link with information on how to submit OpEds/LOE to specific papers: TheOpEdProject

Thank you,

Josh
