Mothers Out Front Social Media Guide for #RiseForClimate
In support of Rise for Climate, Mothers Out Front will be calling upon our mayors, governors, and other local and state decision-makers to make a fast, fair and just transition to 100% renewable energy and an immediate end to new fossil fuel projects.
If you cannot attend a local event or even if you can, a great way to get your decision-maker's attention is by tweeting or posting your message and pictures on Twitter/Facebook and tagging their official accounts!
- Along with tagging your elected official(s), please tag @MothersOutFront and use both hashtags #RiseForClimate and #MothersOutFrontRise in your posts.
- BEFORE THE EVENT: Take a selfie with a sign that says #WhyIRise, and include your reason for joining the event. Share on social media with the hashtags #WhyIRise and #MothersOutFrontRise
- If your team is visiting an elected official's office, recruit people who cannot join you to support the event on social media, making your ask in-person and online! You can even have a call-in campaign, too.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get an email or call-in campaign created to support your event.
- Attend a #RiseForClimate event and take photos of people—including mothers and children. Share them on your Twitter and Facebook pages with the hashtags and tag @MothersOutFront. Add a quote saying why you chose to attend.
- You can make a sign that says, “#WalktheTalk, Governor [Last Name] because …..” and finish that sentence for us! Then take a selfie or a group shot holding the sign and post it with the hashtags and tag @MothersOutFront.
- Make a selfie video with your team or your family and tell us why you want your decision-makers to make a clean, just transition to clean renewable energy. Post your video on Facebook and Twitter, tag the official you are targeting, tag @MothersOutFront and add the hashtags.
