What to share with media:

  • A press release on an event, research, or information

  • An op-ed, a timely, provocative essay that expresses an opinion on an important issue

  • Letters to the editor (LTEs) respond to a previous article in the paper.

Note: Most policymakers and staff read op-eds and LTEs to track what's important to their constituents.
