Social workers: It’s time to mobilize your clients and communities to vote!
Civic Health Month is committed to improving the civic health of the people we work with, especially underrepresented and marginalized populations. Did you know that when asked why they had not registered to vote, more than 60% of eligible voting-age adults said they had never been offered the chance to register? Yes, no one even asked them if they were eligible to vote! Good news: You have the power to change that!
We’ve assembled a toolkit you can use to post about Civic Health Month and voter recruitment and engagement that is specifically tailored to social workers. Simply download the pertinent images and copy and paste the corresponding captions to each social media platform you use: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Remember to tag your social work friends and colleagues. Across all platforms use the hashtags #votingissocialwork and #voteforyourhealth
You are free to use and edit these posts after Civic Health Month to promote voting recruitment and engagement leading up to the general election.
Now go and vote like our health depends on it!
