Social Media Helps Build Support for Immigration Reform
Washington--To build support for immigration reform leading up to Tuesday's State of the Union address, farmer and rancher members of Farm Bureau were urged to change their profile pictures-on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media platforms-to pro-reform images. Many also shared messages of support for immigration reform using the hashtag #IAmImmigration.
Idaho Farm Bureau is using the image in support of Immigration reform, this is all part of the #IFarmImmigration campaign, for which AFBF has partnered with the Partnership for a New American Economy. February is #IFarmImmigration month and will kick off PNAE's #IAmImmigration campaign continuing through 2014. The month will include numerous events and opportunities to promote our message through Washington, D.C., and local district events plus digital and media outlets.
PNAE brings together more than 500 Republican, Democratic and independent mayors and business leaders united in making the economic case for streamlining, modernizing and rationalizing our immigration system. More can be found about PNAE here.
