There will come a time when you feel strongly about a particular civic issue or proposed law, as a citizen of the United States you have the constitutional right to speak out in favor or opposition of such issues. One good way to get to position known by a relevant party, is to write a letter of support or opposition to your representing congressman or senator. You can read more about the mechanics of writing such a letter here.
Here is an example letter that you can use as a template when writing your own:
The Honorable [Senator Name]
Senate Office Building
Washinton, D.C. 20510
Dear Senator _______
As a scientist and concerned citizen I urge you to support the increase in funding of America’s education system. America is increasingly falling behind other countries such as China and India in the training of the next generation of engineers and scientists.
A 10 percent increase to the education budget would allow for America’s children to have a higher quality education due to the following reasons:
- The hiring of more teachers and reducing the student teacher ratio
- Updating older science lab equipment and computers to give our nation’s children the ability to learn to use the latest technology
There are of course many more benefits to increasing the education budget, but ultimately an investment in America’s kids is a investment in the future of America. Thank you for your consideration and please contact me if you wish to discuss the issue further.
