    What are letter templates and call scripts for?[edit | edit source]

    Letter templates and call scripts are for people who may have trouble putting into words what they want. You don't need to follow a template or script exactly, but it can provide a good starting point.

    What would I need to write a letter/ make a call about?[edit | edit source]

    Writing letters to and calling people in authority positions is one part of advocating for the rights and dignity of nonbinary people. You may need to write a letter or make a call to advocate for those rights, be it how a school is not recognizing nonbinary genders or if housing is being denied to a nonbinary person. It could be from an issue directly impacting you, someone you know, or as part of a national campaign for nonbinary rights.
