1. Turn your real-life organizing steps into digital stories:

    Are you passing out flyers? Making art? Holding 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!

        Post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #whoseside or #leadwithus — or share on Snapchat!

        Some great examples from Global Divestment Day and People’s Climate March and  last year:

2. Share why you are joining.

Everyone’s reason for fighting for divestment is unique. What’s yours?

3. Ask your friends to join you.

Could be an email. Could be a Facebook post. Could be via Snapchat. Or just call them up!

4. Share existing stories on your own social media.

Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network and Fossil Free will be sharing lots of stories and updates on our social media accounts — so if you want an idea, just re-share from there.

5.  Ask important 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?
