Advocates! We need you. Take action with us w/ a Twitterstorm on 11/20 from 12pm - 1pm. Find more details below. 

WHAT IS A TWITTERSTORM?

A Twitterstorm is simply a short period of time during which advocates join together to send a high volume of tweets on a specific topic. We will prepare tweets for you (found below) and you can copy and paste them throughout the hour, or schedule your tweets in advance. You can also create your own tweets and use the hashtags below to keep us together. Please retweet and “favorite” tweets as they are sent out, even if they are tweets you’ve posted already! 

GOAL

We want to encourage the Governor and Lt Governor to continue to make housing a priority and put $500M for the housing continuum in their bonding bill.

We'll do this by:

  • Favoriting, retweeting, and posting the prepared tweets for the full hour
  • Using @GovTimWalz and @LtGovFlanagan in our tweets
  • Using the following hashtags in your tweets: #Homes4AllMN; #mnleg; #Bonds4Housing
