Making deaf children matter

Musings and blogs from a deaf campaigner

So you think emailing your MP is a waste of time?

Posted by Ian Noon on February 18, 2011


Well, I think the 38 Degrees grassroots campaigning organisation have convincingly proved otherwise. After a barrage of emails and letters from angry constituents to MPs on the Government’s plans to sell off the forests, the Government decided to think again. MPs listened and they forced the Government to listen too. You could say that they finally saw the wood for the trees.

A nice little display of people power. And I must admit, I’m a big fan of 38 Degrees and always thinking of things and campaign ideas to steal from them for NDCS’s campaign work to force the Government to listen to concerns on cuts to help for deaf children. Can a little people power be exercised on this? And how can an organisation like NDCS help nudge this along besides the standard template emails for people to send to their local decision-makers?

A good day for trees.
