It takes all of us -- reaching out to those around us, sharing stories and engaging -- in order to help make Break Free a success. Here are ways that anyone, no matter your digital skill level, can use new media to help spread the word.
Invite your friends and family
Send them an email call them, invite them to the Facebook event, call them, text them, send them a Snapchat video. Whichever way you want, it’s important for you to reach out to those around you.
For most Break Free actions, we welcome many people to join. Not everyone has to take part in the action. Your brother could help make food for people, your best friend could help take photos, etc.
Also important as the action gets closer to re-invite people! Reminders are crucial.
Share why you’re going
Why do you think it’s important to break free from fossil fuels? Why are you joining? Share on your social media accounts why you have decided to join. When you post, use the hashtag #keepitintheground
What’s happening in your area?
Are you passing out flyers? Making art? Holding local meetings? That’s awesome! Now will you share about it on your own social media*? That way people in your networks can learn more about the awesome things under way. We want to hear what you are doing!
Share existing memes/signs/videos
Ask people in your community to also share about it.It doesn’t have to be a big celebrity. Could be your local football team, musician or politician. Who in your community do people listen to and who has a big reach on social media? Ask them and see if they can help spread the word.
