After writing your message on a notecard or piece of paper, hold it up or tape it to your mask. Then grab your phone and take a selfie!
The last step is the most important: Share your message on social media. Talk to people about the importance of these waivers, and encourage them to join the cause! And remember — attach your photo and use #WICWaiversWork when you post!
If you're not quite sure what to say, here are some messaging examples:
USDA is running out of time. On September 30, critical flexibilities for WIC providers will expire. Join me and call on @SecretarySonny and @USDA to extend remote services and keep WIC families safe for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. bit.ly/WICWaiversWork
#WICWaiversWork because they keep pregnant moms, families, and children safe. bit.ly/WICWaiversWork @NatWICAssoc @USDA @SecretarySonny
Join @NatWICAssoc in calling on @SecretarySonny and @USDA to protect WIC families from COVID-19 by extending remote WIC services. #WICWaiversWork! bit.ly/WICWaiversWork
There is no reason states should be deprived of the flexibility they need to safely operate. There is no reason WIC families should be forced to show up in-person to receive nutrition assistance during a global pandemic. Tell @USDA to extend remote WIC services! #WICWaiversWork bit.ly/WICWaiversWork
Join @NatWICAssoc and me in advocating for WIC families. Tell @SecretarySonny and @USDA it is critical to extend WIC flexibilities immediately. #WICWaiversWork, and the nutrition of our future generation depends on them. bit.ly/WICWaiversWork
