Engage on Social Media

Your legislators are on social media operating their own Facebook page and posting tweets on their latest activities. Follow them to stay up-to-date.

Etiquette

If a legislator takes a photo with you, then you can post it on your personal social media profile (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). Regardless of the platform, post etiquette remains the same: professional. Learn more about social media and promoting civility.

  • Use their Facebook or Twitter handle (e.g., @RepMcKinley).
    • They may have a different handle for Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
  • Thank them for meeting with you.
    • A simple “thank you” can go a long way in building a special relationship with your representative.
  • Mention the issues you talked about.
    • Representatives have a lot of issues on their plate. Make sure you reiterate what issues you discussed with them.
  • Tag @ASHAAdvocacy so we can share your post!
    • This is ASHA’s favorite kind of content! We love posting our members activities on social media.  

Here’s an example of an appropriate message to a member of Congress:
