Spread the word

Spread the word

Your voice as a health center advocate is incredibly impactful, and so is your influence on your friends, family, colleagues, and community members. Use your voice to spread the word about the importance of advocacy and bring more and more individuals into the Health Center Movement.

Use Social Media to Show Your Support of Health Centers


Health centers across the country are still facing a 70% funding cliff. It is critical that every health center board member, employee, patient, and supporter spreads the word. We must continue to demand that Congress acts to fix the health center funding cliff. Show your support for health centers on social media. Use the tools and images below to make the case for health centers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Here's what you can do:

Online & Mobile Advocacy Engagement 

Did you know 100% of the Senate and 97% of the House is active on Facebook or Twitter? Not only that, the vast majority of Congressional staffers think that social media allows them to have more “meaningful interactions” with their constituents. Social media magnifies the collective voice of health centers and their patients. Our resources listed below will provide best practices for social media use, encourage others to advocate, and allow you to engage with us.
