Raising Awareness – Tweet-A-Thon
The Feminist Task Force, together with the Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice and the World We Want 2015 Global Platform, is hosting a sunrise to sunset Tweet-a-thon on December 8th, Day of Action on Gender during the Paris COP21 to raise awareness on the interlinkages of gender, poverty, climate change and a variety of pertinent issues. The Tweet-a-thon will also increase the visibility of women’s efforts and initiatives, including the Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice campaign. See more information on action here!

Partner engagment:
There will be 1/2 hour time slots for organizations/individuals to take the lead and highlight their issue/campaign/work on gender & climate justice. This time can also feature tweet chats with invited ‘guests.’ As part of the Women’s Global Call we are inviting members/partners to select a slot to feature their specific area of work, their messaging, or to make themselves available for tweet chats. Currently we have organized 24 – 1/2 slots, which if partnering could be divided into 15 minutes each for two partners.
Sunrise to Sunset Tweeting – Date:  December 8th-Day of Action on Gender. No better day to amplify our voices!
The Tweet-a-thon is organized as a sunrise-to-sunset event beginning in the Paris timeline  (8am to 8pm), with a kick-off the morning of Dec. 8th in Paris, and moving to the New York and the Americas timeline, then the Pacific zone. All time zones can join in this time spread.
Key tweeting:  We are targeting some key people to take part and would welcome your participation, particularly if you’re having an event that day for the Day of Action on Gender. Please let us know so we can focus on that event with live tweeting.
We are partnering with the World We Want 2015 global online platform (www.worldwewant2015.org) to amplify the messaging and the Women’s Global Call on Climate Justice campaign. For more information, contact Rosa G. Lizarde (rosa.lizarde@feministtaskforce.org).
