Letters to the Editor

The Daily Memphian welcomes a diverse range of views and invites readers to submit Letters to the Editor at letters@dailymemphian.com. Submissions should be fewer than 250 words in length. Preference will be given to letters addressing local issues. Writers must provide their name, city where they reside, email address and phone number. Letters that are published will include the writer’s name and city. Anonymous submissions will not be considered.

“Privilege ‘is not something we deserve, or are worthy of, and it is certainly not an excuse to turn a blind eye to the vastly different circumstances that one in five Memphians live under,” letter writers Jude Downing and Sophia Overstreet say.
