Social Media for abortion activism Lisa @edforchoice
Today’s questions• How can social media be used to community-build amongst pro-choice advocates?• How can social media be used to counter misinformation and provide evidence-based information – and to reinforce the need for evidence-based information?• How has social media been used effectively to respond to anti-abortion campaigners (eg. Dorries, Twitter, blogs)?• How can we build a pro-active ongoing pro-choice movement that is available to mobilise at the drop of a hat in the event of attacks on abortion law and access?• How effective is social media as a fundraising tool (Online appeal/Just Giving page etc)?
