In our federal government, state representatives have the task of voicing their district’s constituents’ (that’s us!) needs, beliefs, and agendas. As engaged citizens, one way we can effect change is to let our representatives know how we feel about controversial issues. These are the same issues that you have been discussing and formulating opinions on during the time you created your political parties. Your task now is to find an issue that you feel strongly about, determine where your Representative stands on that issue, and write a letter to your Representative explaining:
• Why you feel this issue is important.
• Whether you agree or disagree with his or her position on this issue and why.
• What action/steps you would like him to take related to this issue.
• Why he or she should concern himself with the opinion of young voters/constituents.
Please use business letter formatting for this assignment. We will be sending our letters to our Representatives on Wednesday
