Using Social Media for Advocacy

Social media can be an incredibly powerful tool furthering our efforts by helping increase community awareness, promote advocacy and agency, and educate others about local CHC services. Here’s how you can help spread awareness and advocate on social media:

→ DO: Follow us and your local CHC on social media. Simply by following us on InstagramFacebook, and/or Twitter and engaging with our content helps increase awareness. Find your local CHC on our Community Page.

→ DO: Share your local CHC and our posts in your social media feeds. Sharing our videos and photos helps our efforts reach new folks who may be interested in advocating for affordable health care throughout our communities. 

→ DO: Tag us and your local CHC when sharing advocacy content on social media. By including these handles, you can easily increase awareness and amplify our advocacy efforts. Find your local CHC on our Community Page.

→ DO: Tag your legislators! Visit Washington state’s district finder page to find and learn more about your local representatives and their social media handles.

→ DO: Use our current hashtags. This will help strengthen and unify our voices and allow others to easily find our posts. Please use #SaveHealthCareinWA #ProtectWACHCs in your posts and in stories. 

→ Do: Use our background images for virtual meetings. This helps amplify our message while creating consistency.

→ DO: Be respectful. We believe inclusivity and want affordable, quality health care for all.
