I'm new to activism and I want to write a letter to the mayor of my city to urge him to not allow a slaughterhouse to come to my town. I live in an urban setting and the building where the slaughterhouse is going to be is in a business/residential area. In fact, it's going to share a wall with a sandwich shop!



I've never written a letter like this and I have to be honest in that I'm not good with properly wording what I want to say. Plus I'm not very persuasive.



So if anyone has a moment and would like to help, I'd appreciate it.



Thanks!

Thanks! I actually already wrote it, though. I think I did an ok job. I'm sure I'll be writing more at some point so I'll definately ask you for help next time.

Yeah, I'm in on helping with anything like this, persuasive/argumentative writing and how it works is a large part of my study, and I like to put it into practice! Let us know how it goes with your campaign.
