Using the Media to Raise Awareness for Animal Protection

Both Opinion-Editorials (op-eds) and Letters to the Editor (LTEs) in newspapers and other media outlets are extremely effective and powerful ways for animal advocates to educate both the public and key policy makers on important animal protection issues. The editorial page is one of the most widely read pages in the newspaper. Media outlets typically receive more letters than they can print, but don’t get discouraged. The outlets can be influenced by letters they don’t print, so keep writing. Below are some hints to help you craft an effective letter to the editor or op-ed. You can also always ask for assistance, facts, or for someone to review it at advocacy@mspca.org.

Letters to the Editor

Letters to the editor (LTEs) are a great and easy way to share your opinion widely and educate the public on important issues.

Op-Ed (Opinion-Editorial)

Op-eds are articles written by local citizens, experts, and leaders of organizations that appear opposite the editorial page of a national, state, or local newspaper. They are typically longer, and sometimes more substantive, than letters to the editor.

Massachusetts Newspapers

You likely already know which papers cover your area. However, here are a few websites with listings of Massachusetts newspapers. If you need help finding a local paper or deciding where to send a letter, contact advocacy@mspca.org.
