Power of the Pen: SAMPLE LETTER (campaign
against porn proliferation)
Fill up the information needed &/or modify to your purpose for a more effective campaign.
I have been a patron of your bookshop from (years yyyy-yyyy). Recently, I have noticed that you have an increased supply of (X Brand of Magazine) and (X Book Title/s) on display in very prominent areas. I am dismayed that you are promoting these (magazines/ books). I strongly believe that reading materials, specially those with x-rated visual content have a powerful influence among readers. In fact, studies have shown a higher incidence of crime when exposed to such materials.
Please stop selling these (magazines/books). They have no place in a decent bookstore which has a varied clientele, including young children. Hopefully, your bookstore can be more "child-friendly", a haven for children and their parents to explore the joy of reading and not a place where they will be exposed to these pornographic materials.
I understand that you sell these materials for profit and that you will lose some profit if you stop selling them. However, I believe you have many customers like me who are offended by these materials. Your profit may not come as a monetary benefit but will surely come in different forms such as a better society and environment for all.
I will be waiting for your response. Thank you.
