Letter to an Elected Official
This is a simple, short assignment. There is a sample in Rubrics and Samples. Your Letter to an Elected Official is not a traditional assignment. The purpose is to use a brief and persuasive form of communication to explore and advocate for a solution to a problem relevant to the contemporary US health care system. Hopefully, you may also gain an awareness of factors involved in passing legislation. The approach you will use requires you to stretch yourself in different ways and to become an advocate for things that matter to you. It is your opportunity to express yourself on something that you feel strongly about, but in a way that is professional and persuasive in the face of possible political resistance.
This letter can be on any health care related topic that interests you. Perhaps youre concerned about the governments position on whether the ACA should be repealed or enhanced. Perhaps youre shocked by the mortality rates resulting from substance abuse. In that case, is there legislation pending that you want your elected official to vote on? Perhaps you believe that too little attention is given to issues of gender identity and sexuality or youre worried that too few students receive enough education in high school to prepare them for the health risks of college. Or maybe youre strongly opposed to or supportive of his/her position on a certain issue.. Find reasons (arguments) for your positions (pro or con) and advocate to your congressman, senator, etc. Always back up your statements with whatever evidence you find. The selection of topic is limited only by your creativity.
Please understand that at the federal level, we have two U.S. senators (United States Senate, Washington, D.C.) and 8 Congressmen/Congresswomen who represent our various districts in the U.S. House of Representatives (Washington D.C., referred to as Congressman/Congresswoman or Representative). At the state level, we also have Senators, and we have Assemblymen/Assemblywoman (meeting in Annapolis, MD). Please select an elected official who represents the state of Maryland. He/she can be one of our two U.S. Senators (Ben Cardin or Chris van Hollen at their Washington D.C. address) your Congressman or Congresswoman (U.S. House of Representatives), State Senator (Annapolis, MD), Assemblyman (Annapolis). You must research who is appropriate for your location. You can also address your letter to our Governor (Larry Hogan).
