How to Write a Letter Calling for Community Action

Being part of a community can sometimes involve acting together for the common good. Local environmental problems, or safety concerns after dark, for instance, are issues that could require collective action for change. If you want to call on the community to act on a particular issue, you must begin with a strong and persuasive letter to all community residents outlining the problem and suggesting a course of action. Your letter needs to make the community see the problem as its own, and therefore be willing to act together for the common good.
