Join the Country in Telling MPs #WhatsAtStake
Advocating with Stories – Sharing What’s at Stake
- Tweet @ your MP
Contact your MP in the most direct and efficient way: Use Imagine Canada’s super simple advocacy tool to tweet directly at your MP about how the community would be affected by a loss of your services. Use the hashtag: #WhatsAtStake and tag @ Imagine Canada.
- Email your MP
Extend your reach: Tell your story through an email to your MP using Imagine Canada’s sample letter.
- Connect with local media
If you have connections to local media outlets, now is the time to activate them. If you don’t – now is the time to get connected. Reach out to tell them your story of community impact, and how crucial it is for nonprofits to be supported through the COVID-19 recovery. Let them know how your community depends on your services. Here is a brief story pitch to help.
- Ask your network to do the same
Forward this email to the nonprofits and charities in your network.
