Write Change is a website that teaches aspiring activists how to write letters for their representatives. The form introduces writers to environmental causes in St. Louis and guides them through the steps to fill out a template letter, which teaches them the format of writing letters on their own in the future. This project was designed and developed by Madison Ronchetto for her BFA Communication Design 2022 Undergraduate Capstone Project at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.
