The best way to publicize your case is to have a contact, like a family member or a friend, who is on the outside do the work for you. They will have much more access to the media, the internet, and communications in general.

Make sure it is someone you trust, who also has time to dedicate to the work, and who will be honest about what they can and cannot do. Provide them with detailed and specific information regarding your case, but remember to keep any original paperwork you may have.

If you decide to go about publicizing your case yourself, we have provided a short list of places you can write to, besides the support organizations already mentioned. Again, when writing, be specific and focus on what you believe are the main points of your case. You will also want to always include a cover letter, briefly introducing yourself and telling the publication why you are writing them.
