Engage Your Government

You can use this template letter as a draft - altering it to include whatever text you want to write to your government. The most relevant government offices would be the foreign office and the prime minister/president. 

Connect with Mainstream Media 

You can use the template press release we've designed - feel free to change whatever information you like and be sure to include at the top the reasons why a treaty is really important for your country (for example, include reference to any major well known corporate human rights abuses going on in your country).

Connect with the UN Intergovernmental Working Group
