The United Farm Workers (UFW) is launching a digital day of action today urging farm workers and supporters to support the Senate immigration bill (S. 744) and a road map to citizenship for aspiring citizens.
Using the hashtag #FieldFotos on Facebook and Twitter, the UFW is asking supporters to share stories and images of farm workers online. Here are ways you can help, via the #FieldFotos campaign page:
Steps for the photos from the Field Campaign are:
1. Farm workers and supporters: Take a photo(s) holding a poster/banner that says “Con La Unión de Campesinos Tendremos Papeles” or “I support farm workers and S. 744.”
Farm workers: You can also take pictures in the fields to show what a day at work looks like.
2. Select Facebook, Twitter or BOTH.
- Here is a full list of Senate Twitter handles. Our key target is Sen. Saxby Chambliss: @SaxbyChambliss
3. Upload the photo to Facebook, Twitter or both.
4. Use the following Farm worker or Supporter sample messages on Twitter and Facebook:
*Note: Make sure to put a period (.) before your tweets. “.@Senator….” It allows the tweet/post to be public.
5. Use the hashtag #FieldFotos at the end of your message on Twitter and Facebook.
8. Finally share, post or tweet the picture and brief message.
