We Demand Democracy! A Spring Recess Banner Drop

April 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Updated April 9: You can still do your own banner drop using the toolkit and tips below. Be sure to post pictures, etc. to social media using the hashtags listed.

Members of Congress are home for spring recess, and they need to hear from us!

Indivisible AVL is joining with groups all over the country for Recovery Recess actions during this Congressional Spring Recess period (March 29 through April 11), to draw attention to the need for a bold recovery and democracy reform…

How to Participate

For this Banner Drop event, we’re asking everyone to make big bold banners saying “WE DEMAND DEMOCRACY BECAUSE….” and fill in what’s important to you. Then go somewhere with your friends to a highly visible area (outside, please, for Covid-19 safety), take photos of yourselves with your banner, and post on social media.

We have a detailed toolkit here, with traceable letters and printable graphics. We want people to see why sweeping democracy reform and the For the People Act are important to you!

You can do this on your own from anywhere… To make your signs ahead of time, download and share the Toolkit at: bit.ly/demand-democracy

Tips:

  • Try to choose a high-traffic location: such as an overpass, a main intersection, or something similar, or just an area where many people tend to walk by.
  • You could also go to the outside of our reps’ offices!
  • When you get to your destination, take a picture of you and your friends with your banners.
  • Then post your photo on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – whatever social media platforms you’re on – using these hashtags:
    • #WeDemandDemocracy
    • #ForThePeopleAct
    • #IndivisibleAVL
  • On Twitter, be sure to tag @SenatorBurr and @SenatorTillis

We will follow and share and retweet your posts!

Feel free to share the toolkit with friends: bit.ly/demand-democracy
