Virtual Advocacy Day: Social Media

Sample Tweets and Facebook posts for your legislators:

SUSTAINED FUNDING:

[Insert Legislator Username] In 2018, victim service advocates served 17,103 sexual assault survivors, a 20% increase from the previous year. Supporting sustained funding of victim services is crucial to enabling programs to continue improving services for all survivors. #AdvocacyDayIA

FEMALE GENITAL CUTTING BILL:

To be sent to Speaker Linda Upmeyer (Facebook @SpeakerUpmeyer; Twitter @SpeakerUpmeyer) and Majority Leader Chris Hagenow (Facebook @HagenowforIowa; Twitter @ChrisHagenow) only

[Insert Legislator Username for Rep. Upmeyer or Rep. Hagenow] Please amend the Female Genital Cutting bill SF346 with a community education amendment, which will provide vital support to communities impacted by this practice. Putting laws into place before educating communities would cause more harm.#AdvocacyDayIA
