Activists' Toolkit against Bear Baiting
Only ten states allow this unsporting practice. Is your state one of them [PDF]? If so, help us end this unseemly practice by writing a few quick letters.
We provide sample letters to the editor, sample letters to your legislators, and sample op-eds to get you started. You can edit these or use them as a guide to write your own.
Write a letter to the editor
A well written, well timed letter to the editor can shift public opinion and influence policy.
Ask elected officials to stop this abuse
Write an op-ed
If you want to be more creative, try submitting a longer essay to the op-ed pages of your favorite newspaper.
