Transcript ♦WRITE on: Letter writing is a useful technique for making waves. It is easy to do, inexpensive, and good for the soul. And it can get results. Letters can serve many purposes: to make suggestions, to make a "servant of the people" serve us, to show that we care, to use our consumer power, to initiate an inquiry, to express thanks for a positive step, etc. To whom should you write? The President, other elected officials, commissions and boards, editors, businesses, educators, and organizations. Organize a letter writing kit: a list of names and addresses of public officials, newspapers and TV stations; postcards, notepaper, stamps, pen; scissors to clip articles of interest. (Be sure your kit includes the address of Rep. Bob Gammage; our chapter asks members to write Gammage as well as their own representative on all Congressional issues. Rep. Gammage's about face since his election warrants special attention.) Keep your kit in the room where you watch TV and read the newspaper. When you get the impulse to write, do it! As a regular monthly feature in BROADSIDE, we will target someone for our chapter's "letter of the month." If you have a suggestion for this honor, submit it to Linda Bain (729-6883) prior to the Broadside copy deadline. This Month: Support the E.R.A. Extension N.O.W. has initiated and is coordinating the current effort in Congress to extend the time period in which the E.R.A. can be ratified by the necessary 38 states. We are convinced that Congress has the absolute and unreviewable right to extend the time limit. We urge members to write their Congresspersons in support of H.J. Res. 638 to extend the E.R.A. ratification period. The majority in this country favor the E.R.A. An extension will allow E.R.A. to be fully and fairly considered in all states. We also want to let President Jimmy Carter know we are dismayed tha'; he did not urge speedy ratification of the E.R.A. as a part of his so- called human rights concerns during the State of the Union address. Houston Area N.O.W. is committed to sending at least 50 letters to area representatives. Write a minimum of two letters -- one to Rep. Gammage and one to the representative of your own district. (If you are uncertain about your district, call the League of Women Voters at 529-3171.) Use this address The Honorable U.S. House of Representatives Washington, D.C. 20515
