WE HAVE OVER 90,000 COALITION MEMBERS, 150,000 LIBERTARIAN PARTY MEMBERS, AND SUPPORTED BY THE GOP, 4 MILLION REACH -- WE SIMPLY NEED MEDIA AND ORGANIZATIONS TO ALERT THE PUBLIC AND TO BE OUT THERE TO OFFER THE SIGNINGS AND CAPTURE THE SIGNATURES!!
CALL TO ACTION!!

Please have two or more people at each location, for safety.
Suggested home-made signs: "Recall The Governor," "Sign Here!," etc...
We want to help you get the word out about your locations, so be sure to do all of the above steps so when media covers the events before hand, when we do advertising, people are able to find you to come and sign!
Thank you for your continued fight to Save California!
One way you can make impact is by writing your local papers with a Letter to the Editor. Most letters to the Editor are put to print. We share the how-to's and guidelines below. Read carefully.
Many local papers have an online submission page for writing your local Editor. If your local paper does not have a submission page you can find your paper's information on their website or the paper itself and send your letter "snail-mail."
ALL Letters to the Editor should be in response to an article found in RECENT print in the paper you select. Read your local Letters to the Editor to see examples of selected LTTE published material.
Sample Letter Guide:
Address Line One
Address Line Two
Paper / Publication Name
Address Line One
Address Line Two
Dear Editor Name,
(State if this is an open letter or if you would like to keep your name anonymous.)
I request you keep my name anonymous for obvious reasons, although you have my permission to print my letter contents.
Move right into your letter contents...
Talk about either the Article you are responding to, site name of article OR Community Event you are referencing. State your concern or observation. In our community we have experienced an increase of homelessness (keep it directed at whatever topic you are focusing on.) Governor Gavin Newsom has [enter information here.] This is why I have gotten involved in the RAN Action Fund recall of Gavin Newsom initiated by Erin Cruz. In [your town] [state problems/solutions.] The public needs to be aware there is a recall of Gavin Newsom and be directed to the website ranaf.org/petition so they can decide if they would like to participate and sign the petition, or not. The deadline for the petition is February 13, 2020. Start to close the letter with positive, attention grabbing outcomes with the solution, recalling Gavin Newsom summerizing your main point.
Your Name, City
NOTE: If your first or second letter is not printed, use another approach. Write to the Editor regarding their non-coverage of the community/county involvement in the Recall of Gavin Newsom. Use the information outline above tailoring the letter to fit your county/city and newspaper specifically.
Media plays a large roll in our society today. We need local media coverage to turn out at local signing events. In order to show up at events, media needs to be made aware of your local activities.
Start by doing the following:
Sample Script Guide:
Good Afternoon, [Name of Press Contact,]
My name is [Your Name] and I am reaching out because we have a community event coming up we want the public to be aware of. This is a great opportunity for your network to have a story many people here will want to watch. ( Use your own words. The goal is to have them interested and take your information down.) We are holding an event on [Date, time, location] as a part of the non-partisan effort to Recall Gavin Newsom. As a community member and volunteer of the Erin Cruz led recall of Gavin Newsom, and a resident of [city/county] of [state years] I watch your network and know this is the kind of news worthy material you would like to share. (Again, in your own words.)
Be sure to give all important information mentioned in the guidelines above. If the press want to talk to Erin Cruz or a Representative of RAN Action Fund, please have them reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org - Email is the most efficient way to get their message to us quickly. If you have press interested, they are sending RANAF an email, let your Regional Director know right away so we can be looking for the email outreach.
