Social Media Kit for #IVote2EndHunger Campaign

August 24, 2016

Provides simple instructions and tips within the four ways you can make hunger and poverty issues in the 2016 campaigns through social media.

Designed for a person who is already active online and using social media.

Use this kit as a starting point, and then unleash your creativity to elevate hunger and poverty as issues in both local and national races.

Candidates are not just speaking, but they are also listening. Digital-minded Christians should see social media platforms as an opportunity to “give justice to the weak and the orphan; maintain the right of the lowly and destitute” (Psalm 82:3). Engaging in digital conversations is engaging in democracy, which is part of good Christian stewardship. We want candidates to know that we are voting to end hunger, and so we must be a part of the conversation.
