You will have two letter assignments for this course. Think carefully about the people and issues you choose to write about as you may be lucky enough to get a response! The letter writing assignments are described below, followed by examples of letters sent by students in previous policy classes.

Letter 1

Write a letter addressed to your congressional or state representative on an issue of your choosing. We will share our letters and then mail them together following class.

Letter 2

Write a letter addressed to a federal agency on a proposed rule of your choosing.
