Welcome to the eighth post in the “10 Ways to Support Immigrants and Refugees” series!
#3: Share on Social Media
You can be an “influencer” for your friends and family! Make it easy for your loved ones to participate in advocacy for immigrants and refugees by sharing templates for emails and phone calls to representatives. You can also create infographic posts that your followers can repost. As long as you are sharing reliable data and including sources, you can be an impactful social media advocate.
Another effective type of social media advocacy is the sharing of petitions. Create your own on Change.org or reshare already-existing petitions. In order to access the petitions that already exist, try subscribing to the Change.org newsletter or following social media accounts that often post the links to the petitions.
How do you stay updated on issues affecting immigrants and refugees in your community and across the globe? Let us know on our social media!
