Reaching Your Intended Audience
The Session Long Project entails going through the process of influencing policymakers. Under the Connecticut Health Policy toolbox resource, read the section on “Writing to Policymakers.” You will notice toward the bottom of that page, “sample letters” and “related articles.” Read these sections as you will use them throughout your Session Long Project.
For this part of the Session Long Project you will be writing on “supporting a proposal” (see sample letter at the bottom of the Connecticut Health Policy toolbox resource). Write on supporting any proposal that is related to the topic identified in SLP 1. You may choose to advocate for change at the local, state, or national level.
- Using the same topic from SLP 1, identify the level you wish to write to (local, state, or national).
- For this SLP assignment, you will be writing on “supporting a proposal.”
- Choose one of the related articles on the bottom of the Connecticut Health Policy toolbox (different from the ones you used for SLP 1 & 2). Describe the key points of the article (one paragraph) and how it relates to influencing policymakers (one paragraph).
- Write a one-page letter, that encompasses the information from the above 3 bullets (on “supporting a proposal”).
Note: The first page addresses bullets 1-3. The second page is a one-page letter on “supporting a proposal” and encompasses information from questions 1-3 (see sample letters for guidance). Remember, your letter addresses “supporting a proposal.”
