#South4MedEx Tweet Storm

February 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Indivisible AVL, along with hundreds of other partner organizations in the Southerners for Medicaid Expansion Coalition, is participating in a coordinated Tweet Storm at 3pm to amplify the message that America can’t recover if the South isn’t covered

The Coalition is fighting for legislation in Congress that will make Medicaid Expansion an even SWEETER deal for Southern states. And the purpose of the Feb 17 Tweetstorm is to spread the word and to keep up public pressure on Southern legislatures to #ExpandMedicaid.

Please join us at 3pm to spread the word. Use the hashtag #South4MedEx and help us make a splash! (Not on Twitter? Please post on any social media platform!)

NC policymakers to push:

Senator Phil Berger [NC] — @SenatorBerger
Representative Tim Moore [NC] — @NCHouseSpeaker

NOTE: Berger and Moore have repeatedly BLOCKED Medicaid Expansion for North Carolina for years. Tell them now is the time to #ExpandMedicaid and close the gap for North Carolinians!

Congressional policymakers to thank:

Senator Warnock [GA] — @RevWarnock
Representative Marc Veasey [TX] — @RepVeasey
Senator Jon Ossoff [GA] — @ossoff
Representative G.K. Butterfield [NC] — @GKButterfield

NOTE: These Senators and Reps are introducing legislation that will add incentives for holdout states to finally accept free federal funds and Expand Medicaid. Let’s thank them publicly for their leadership!

Sample Tweets & Hashtags

Please use the hashtag #South3MedEx in all posts. Also feel free to use any of the following: #ExpandMedicaid #MedicaidExpansion #MedEx4NC #CloseTheGapNC

We too often see legislation from D.C. that does not adequately address the racial injustice & wealth inequalities that must be addressed to make progress in our region. Thank you Sen. @RevWarnock and @RepVeasey for fighting for our healthcare needs in the South.  #South4MedEx

The pandemic exposed long-standing systemic racism and economic disparities across the South—now that we can see it, we all must work to change it. We need policies that will make coverage and care more affordable. #South4MedEx

Southerners are more likely to be uninsured than any other region in the U.S. NC needs #MedicaidExpansion now! #South4MedEx
