Social Media Toolkit

The UPR occurs once every 4-5 years and is extremely important in fostering accountability & change.  We urge you to spread the word about this unique mechanism (happening Monday, November 9 at 8:30 am ET on http://webtv.un.org/). It is important to remind your audience of the human rights violations of this administration as it faces global review and scrutiny. 

Below are sample social media posts & tweets. Feel free to tailor this content for your community, and use data points and hashtags that are relevant and impactful to your audience -- for example, violations of the human right to housing, education, immigration, health, etc.  Make sure to also follow USHRN on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for updates.
