Tell Us Your Story

SHARE your story. We want to hear from New York City public school families about their personal experiences with remote school the past year. 

How to Advocate on Twitter

Twitter is the most important social media forum, because it’s the public forum! Elected officials, journalists, and thought leaders can see our advocacy there, unlike advocacy in Facebook and other closed forums.


We need every single one of you to like and retweet all of the tweets that include the  #KeepNYCSchoolsOpen hashtag. Twitter is a great organizing tool and the more followers, likes, and retweets we have, the more attention our advocacy and demands will receive. 


Reminder: As you start tweeting about this issue, please use the hashtag #KeepNYCSchoolsOpen so we can find your tweets and amplify them. 

Hashtags to follow and amplify: #KeepNYCSchoolsOpen and #openschools


Follow and amplify our handle: @KeepNYCSchools1

Tag elected officials and journalists in your posts. Here are Twitter handles of journalists/elected officials.
