In this writing activity, we are going to write to the American President.
War and conflict around the world is often perpetuated or backed by the United States. The government receives a lot of correspondence advocating for one side or the other in these conflicts, but how often does the president get calls for peace for everyone?
Why not send the president a letter, petitioning for peace?
How to write to the President of the United States:
1.) Do your research. Be sure that your information is accurate and up-to-date. Site your sources.
2.) Be specific and succinct. What conflict do you want the U.S. to pull out of? What steps do you want them to take? How do you suggest they promote peace and reconciliation?
3.) Be as formal and polite as possible, and follow a basic business letter or email format.
Where to direct your correspondence:
To send an email:
White House email
To send a letter:
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20500
If you choose to write a letter, type it out on 8 1/2 X 11 paper, and include an envelope with your return address on it. Do not include any objects.
