Five easy steps to place the PSA on your local radio stations:
By providing the PSA to your local radio stations, you spread the word about the Sschool of the Americas and encourage maximum audience participation in the April Days of Action! The process is an easy one if you follow these simple steps:

1. Compile a media list.

  • Use a phone book or Internet directory to identify all local radio stations. Be sure to include community-based and college radio stations.

2. Identify the appropriate person at each station.

  • Call each broadcaster and ask if they run PSAs.
  • If they do, ask for the name of the Community Affairs or Public Service Director, or in their absence, the person to whom to send a PSA.

3. Write an email.

  • Write to the appropriate person, asking them to run the PSA and explaining what the School of the Americas is and why it needs to get shut down.
  • Make sure to include your name, affiliation and a telephone number with the best times to reach you.
  • Include the script of the PSA and the link for the page where they can download it.

4. Follow-up.

  • Call your contacts at each broadcaster a few days after sending the email. Ask if s/he received the email and if they are willing to consider running the PSA. Remember to be brief and polite.

5. Say "thank you".

  • Make sure to thank the outlets that run the PSA with a letter. Let them know you appreciate the part they played in getting people involved in the campaign to close the SOA and the April Days of Action.

6. Contact SOA Watch.

  • Contact the SOA Watch's National Organizer Hendrik Voss at (202) 234 3440 and let him know which stations broadcasted the PSA.
