Turning social media posts into powerful letters to change gun laws.

Joaquin Oliver

After every mass shooting, Americans go online to post their frustrations and calls for change. Few write letters to Congress, which 96%* of Capitol Hill staff says is the most effective way to influence politicians.

The representatives who change gun laws can’t ignore the power of handwritten letters. That’s why we started Posts into Letters: a movement that turns social media posts into letters for Congress.

But not just any letters...
