Shall Not Perish 2016 is a group of people across the US who have committed to a weekly letter writing campaign to US Senators (optional to Reps) with the goal of continuing for 1 year. We want to foster civic engagement in the letter writer while focusing topics so Senators are receiving a batch of linked letters on the same topic in a short time span (1-2 days).
We send an email every Thursday with the week’s topic and some information to get you started writing. For an example, see Example Email. You write the letter and mail a copy to each Senator on Monday. Reward and thank Senators who support progressive causes and alert Senators whose views you disagree with, asking them to reconsider their positions.
