Resistance Recess June 30 – July 9 Social Media Toolkit

Social media alone will not stop 50 Senators plus the vice president from stripping 22 million Americans of their health care coverage. But it’s a great way to help spread the word, get facts out to your community, mobilize like-minded folks and publicly shame Senators who are not opposing this monstrous bill.

I. Twitter

  • Trumpcare Toolkit allows you to instantly tweet customized graphics to target Senators.
  • Use these graphics with your tweets to help mobilize calls to the HIV Protection Hotline and to get the word out.
  • Here are some sample tweets with state-specific numbers you can target key “swing” Senators with:

II. Facebook/Instagram/Twitter

  • Here are some graphics you can use on Facebook and Instagram.
  • The infographics below from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities are great for use on social media. They easily capture how the AHCA/BCRA would take away health care from those with less to give tax cuts to those with the most. To download them for use on social media, in emails or elsewhere, just right-click on the image and then click “save as image.” AHCA graphic 3
