Many of us have been motivated to speak up and speak out about racial injustice, police brutality and health disparities. It's also Pride Month and a lot of us are also advocating for the rights of LGBTQIA community members.

If you're anything like me, there are so many aspects to the issues we care about that it can be hard to keep our comments focused. There's so much people need to know. So much we need to tell them. That's when I turn to my tried and true People-Information-Goals strategy. It helps me get the ideas out of my head and onto the page so I can figure out which details and calls to action have the most impact and influence. Filling it out by hand, which I recommend, has the added benefit of slowing our brains down so we think more clearly and consider important aspects like audience objections and author's voice.
