Advocacy Day is only two weeks away, which means we are about to take our very important message to a Congress that will shape the way funding is disbursed to the CDFI industry for the next 24 months, as budgets are finalized for FY2017 and 2018. Even if you are unable to join us physically in D.C. you can join us for Virtual Advocacy Day. With these five tools you can help us take the #CDFIstory to Capitol Hill and expose that same story to millions of viewers on social media.

  1. Use this Twitter List of congressional handles to tweet directly at your representatives

  2. Use our images and infographics to increase the chances of your posts being shared and retweeted

  3. Join in on conversations around the list of hashtags congressional reps are using

  4. Use your Member Profile to show your direct impact in your posts

  5. Use our Fact Sheets to share data with policymaker

If you are not social media-savvy, we have instant tweets you can use at your convenience to click and send unified messages that are part of this campaign.
