#WEmatter momsrising.org

26 Aug

Today August 26th on Women’s Equality Day, MomsRising and dozens of our partner organizations are taking to Twitter at using a new hashtag – #WEmatter – to help send Congress a wakeup call that #WEmatter, our votes matter, and we want elected officials to begin taking action on the issues that impact women’s and family economic security (#paidsickdays, #childcare, #paidfamilyleave, #equalpay, #raisethewage, #foodjustice, #gunsafety, and many more).



Visit momsrising.org

Help spread #WEmatter throughout the Twitterverse:

1. Tag 5 friends in a tweet using #WEmatter.
2. Tag a state or local organization with a “have you heard about #WEmatter?” tweet.
3. Search for #WEmatter on Twitter and retweet 5 of your favorite tweets.
4. Tweet 5 of the sample tweets that we send you.

There is an election right around the corner and that makes now the perfect time to make sure that our elected officials in Congress and beyond know that we matter and we will be holding them accountable when we vote. Women and family economic security issues are more than just political footballs and talking points. Our voices, and our votes, matter. #WEMatter.
And #WE(really)Matter! Women are 53% of the entire electorate [2] and we make 3/4 of all purchasing decisions in our consumer-fueled economy.
*Let’s put our elected officials on notice: Take action by signing on the moms open letter to Congress to remind them that #WEmatter and we vote. Hold our elected officials accountable by telling them that when we vote (and we do vote in large numbers!), we prioritize family economic security issues and we expect them to prioritize those issues too.
Sign the #WEmatter pledge.
