Presidential Election Year
Use Social Media to Get Poverty and Homelessness Discussed at Upcoming Debates
The presidential election season and upcoming debates presents an opportunity to get conversations of poverty and homelessness onto the main stage. Social Media is a major platform for communicating a message and engaging in advocacy. Platforms like Twitter and Facebook can be used to directly ask candidates to discuss issues of homelessness and poverty. As public platforms, questions and requests you propose become public, putting pressure upon them to respond. Tweet @ the candidates or post a question on their Facebook walls. Let’s keep the pressure up and get discussions of homelessness and poverty onto the debate floor!
