1) Utilize social media (Facebook/twitter) to engage with the campaign, promote our event, and facilitate public conversation.

2) Visit our booth–bring friends, and invite your friends/fellow students to do the same.

Please Note: even if you can only visit the booth for a quick photo to post to your networks–this advocacy is incredibly important, so please do stop by.
