Using mainstream media and social media, Campaign Nonviolence will implement a comprehensive media strategy that will raise the visibility of these hundreds of local nonviolent actions and frame them as part of a national mobilization. As part of this effort, we need your help!
Use social media to raise the visibility of your action—and contact your local press (TV, radio, blogs and newspaper) to do this as well! As the date approaches, we will send you a sample press release that you can use or adapt to spread the news to your local media outlets. Read our social media tips to help spread the word today!
Create a Facebook event page for your local action (you can use our national event page from 2014 as a template for your local event page).
Post a link to your local event on:
Campaign Nonviolence’s Facebook page.
On any local groups/pages you are collaborating with or wish to invite to your event.

In social media, people pay most attention to pictures and graphics. Please take a moment during our week of actions to take a picture of yourself with the CNV graphic/logo and a few words on why mainstreaming nonviolence is important to you. Then post it to your Twitter, Facebook and other social media accounts!
