#CallThemOut Social Media Campaign
The American immigration Council has always prided itself on being THE source for facts and information that support a rational immigration discussion. Over the years, we have produced numerous in-depth and timely reports that are used by legislators and the media to combat the myths and misinformation that the anti-immigrant community has relied on to deliver their message and winover supporters.
As the immigration debate takes center stage this election season, advocates from both sides have taken to social media to deliver their message. To ensure our work gets the most reach possible and to keep up with the awesome demand for pro-immigrant information, while also growing our base of support, the Council has launched a social media campaign which features a common hashtag and shareable images.
The #CallThemOut campaign asks our supporters to identify instances where immigrants are being mischaracterized and advises supporters to #CallThemOut by countering the myths and misinformation with our facts.
Our hope is to continue this campaign through the 2016 election, as the debate around immigration heats up. We will do this by expanding the #CallThemOut campaign and provide even more opportunities to engage supporters with our work.
Additionally, we will increase our output of professionally designed shareable graphics that combat hateful, anti-immigrant rhetoric and promote the truth and facts. We will work to cultivate and spread our message by activating our most connected and social media-savvy supporters to become advocates of our campaigns.
