Contact Your Elected Officials
An important way to help spread NPG’s message is to write your elected officials. Below are several sample letters to help convey the critical need to halt and reverse U.S. population growth, which can be sent to your Congressmen, Governor, or local leaders. We encourage you to edit the language to fit each specific situation appropriately.
Use the appropriate letters linked below as a basis for your correspondence. Cut and paste the text into your word processor or e-mail program to send to your representative.
