PAR Deadline Approaching
Readers want to know: What is the purpose of your organization? How are you building your group? What campaigns are you organizing? What events are you planning?
We want to publicize the work groups have done and what they’re planning to do. We want to spread the word to others who will be inspired to join you, support your activism and build the struggles. Send us articles (even a paragraph or two) about what your group wants to do and any ideas for organizing!
Please send articles about your group’s recent and current activities and upcoming actions and events to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for the February Progressive Action Roundtable Newsletter is Saturday, January 19.
GUIDELINES FOR ARTICLES
Please limit articles to 350 words.
Please include an enticing headline/title for your article so our readers will focus on your work right away.
Indicate your name and organization as they should appear in your byline.
Please include information about your group’s purpose.
Do not use different fonts or sizes in your article.
Include photos in case we can use them.
IMPORTANT: Include your organization’s contact information so readers can get more information about what your group is doing.
ABOUT CALENDAR ITEMS
If you mention an event in an article, please also send a SEPARATE calendar announcement.
Please give street addresses for any events or meetings, even for “well-known” public buildings.
VERY IMPORTANT: Please indicate whether your event location is wheelchair accessible.
You can also send us SAVE THE DATE items about future events, even if you do not yet have all the details in place.
