Write a letter to the editor on Behalf of the River

Write a letter to the editor voicing your support for restoring the Rio Grande. Writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper is an excellent way to raise awareness about the condition of the Rio Grande, and it shows public officials that people care about the river and want something done.

Consider these talking points:

  • We can have a healthy river AND thriving farms and farmers. They do not need to be mutually exclusive, nor should they.
  • Every drop of the water has someone's name on it, but none of it is for the river itself.
  • More than two-thirds of native fish species are gone from the river
  • Healthy river ecosytems are good, not only for the wildlife that depend upon them, but also for the communities around them.
