4 - Write a leaflet
A useful resource to have is a general leaflet explaining who you are and what you stand for. This can then be distributed at stalls, vigils and meetings to anyone who wants to know more.
A few points to consider are:
- Keep your arguments clear: expect your audience to have no prior knowledge of the situation, and consist of individuals from a variety of backgrounds with a broad range of ideas and opinions.
- Keep it short and to the point: most people will not want to spend much time reading the leaflet, so concentrate on a few memorable points such as Unicef’s figure of half a million child deaths.
- Spend some time on the design: make the leaflet easy on the eye by including a graphic or using different font sizes and styles.
- Give contact details: include a section on how to find out more or get further involved, for example by giving contact details for your group or referring people to a useful website.
