Our ultimate target is the legislative branch at a local level. So far, we have Gil Cedillo and Cristina Miller as
potential targets. We are writing a letter that is directed towards our target, and plan on using logos and

Q1: ​What government content did you learn in this Civic Action Project?

A: We learned that sending mail to government officials can be tricky, so we decided to send a digital letter
through email. We also learned that the legislative branch is the best option when trying to create a new
policy. Government officials that are elected by citizens have the intentions of listening to their constituents,
which is great for influencing and creating change.

Q2: What skills did you gain?

A: The skills we developed include, writing a well formatted letter to a government official, gathering own
content for a video, Creating a PSA, and understanding an audience due to the power analysis assignment.
We also developed the skill to spread awareness throughout PSA & Presentation about the international issue
of Homelessness. Creating talking points that persuade our audience and understanding different rhetorical
devices helped us create an organized and nuanced writing. The skill to persuade our audience either through
PSA, Presenting, Talking Points, or Letter.
