How Can You Help Support Team Kilah? Write About It!

This is a great message from Jeff Gerber, the wonderful, awesome guy behind Kilahs Law!  He shared this on Facebook and I thought it would be great to share here as well. Please consider helping in any way you can 🙂

From Jeff:

Team Kilah, many times I get an email asking what a volunteer can do to help the cause. Although there are many areas of need I want to talk about the need to keep Kilahs Law in the news media as well as public’s eye. One thing I learned being a Political activist for many years is most folks have a very short memory span when it comes to major news story’s. If we don’t keep The Kilah Davenport story alive we will have lost much of our hard work in making “Kilahs Law” a reality.

Many of you hundreds of supporters live throughout different parts of North Carolina. Every County and Municipalities have a local newspaper. Most newspapers have a community “Letter To The Editor” section. In Union County The Email address is: shojnacki@theej.com for The Enquirer Journal Newspaper. Under subject line you put Letter To The Editor. Please supporters find out the policy of submitting an article in your local paper and the email address to submit.

Most papers limit the number of words that can be used in the article. Simply educate your neighbors about the need for Kilahs Law if we are to stop this epidemic we are facing of Felony Child Abuse Inflicting Serious Bodily Harm. If you would like me to look over your article I would be glad too. My personal email address is: jeffgerber02@yahoo.com ( all lower case)

You don’t have to be a professional writer to submit an article, simply speak from the heart and keep in the back of your mind, will this article grab somebody’s attention? And if you spell as bad as me always hit spell check.Typically the news editor will assign a heading to your article. Always include your name, town you live in and phone number. Don’t worry they won’t publish your number. Many times they want to verify you wrote the article. I certainly can’t tell you what to write but just pray about it and put your thoughts down and you will do great. If you choose to submit an article to other parts of the state just Google email addresses to North Carolina newspapers letter to the editor. Thank you all in advance.

    I am in communication with a freelance writer for the Observer, who covers Union County, NC related events . She is going to get approval to do a story about the not for profit Leslie and Family are setting up. When she gets the approval, what is the best way for her to contact Jeff and Leslie? E-Mail? Phone?

    Do you have a prepared letter to “goverment officials” that Kilah’ s law supporters can electronically sign or print out, sign and send to our representatives both here in NC. and federally so this can become a federal president.
