Sample Facebook & Twitter Posts

Below are sample social media posts to help your organization advocate for the investments you know are needed by Minnesotans today and into our stronger future.

MN workers & families will only benefit from improved state budget outlook if #mnleg invests in things that makes strong families & communities: child care, educ, housing, paid family leave, health care. #TogetherWeRiseMN

The uneven recession – folks with more resources doing well & low-wage workers & BIPOC communities struggling immensely – means #mnleg must raise revenues for investments in things MNs need to truly thrive: child care, education, housing & more.

MNs know when our neighbors struggle to keep food in their fridges & meet basic needs it takes all of us to pull together. This time demands a bold response & long-term revenues to build a stronger future for all. #mnleg #TogetherWeRiseMN

We know from new state budget numbers that there is still a gap between current revenues and what’s needed to sustainably build a more equitable recovery. #mnleg #TogetherWeRiseMN

MN’s latest budget forecast shows improvement, but there’s still need for additional permanent revenues for sustainable investment in things MNs need to thrive: child care, education, housing & more. #mnleg

MN’s new budget forecast numbers show $1.6b positive balance in FY 22-23 but that’s just $529m when costs to keep up with inflation are taken into account.

MN’s budget wasn’t meeting MNs needs before the pandemic. Policymakers must make lasting investments like child care, paid family leave, affordable housing, schools, health care, to address what was holding us back and makes the pandemic worse for many everyday MNs.

#mnleg must respond boldly with investments so that all MNs can get through the crises and thrive while building a more equitable economy.

A status quo budget doesn’t meet Minnesotans needs, especially low-income and BIPOC MNs experiencing hardship like hunger, housing insecurity, and loss of jobs or wages. #mnleg

It’s really important to remember that MN’s budget forecast doesn’t fully include costs to respond to pandemic and recession, or even keeping existing services up with costs of inflation #mnleg
