For Social Media
Here you will find suggested social media posts and hashtags — we encourage you to post these messages across your social platforms, using the campaign hashtag and banned terms as much as possible. Instead of being silenced, help us amplify these critical concepts and move the national conversation about race forward.
Sample Posts and Tweets (For Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram)
- Share how the Executive Order may have impacted you. (If you do, you should also use the hashtag #TruthBeTold.)
- Shoot a video explaining how you use these banned words to fight racism.
- Have a discussion with a friend using as many banned words as you can.
- Talk about why you are committed to fighting for racial justice.
- Be creative!
Some suggested language for your posts:
To fight against racism, we must be able to talk about it. Trump’s exec order banning terms like #SystemicRacism, #Intersectionality & #WhitePrivilege aims to reverse the progress Americans have made in facing our country’s history & practicing anti-racism. @Transition46 #BannedWords
Thrilled to see @RaceForward introduce their #BannedWords campaign at #FacingRace today, pushing back on the White House exec order banning diversity training, concepts, & terms like #SystemicRacism, #UnconsciousBias, & #Intersectionality. @Transition46
More than ever before, Americans are seeking meaningful ways to talk about race and anti-racism work. The White House ban on terms like #SystemicRacism, #Intersectionality, & #UnconsciousBias is an attempt to censor those conversations. @RaceForward @Transition46 #BannedWords
The Trump Admin says terms like #SystemicRacism, #UnconsciousBias, and #whiteprivilege are divisive; but if we can’t name it we can’t change it. @RaceForward @Transition46 #BannedWords
Trump has banned antiracism training & work w/in the federal gov. But Americans know we can’t end racism if we can’t talk about it. Join @RaceForward. Let's talk about #intersectionality, #SystemicRacism, and #UnconsciousBias. @Transition46 #BannedWords
To the Biden administration: Rescind Trumps #BannedWords EO 13950! And honor the BIPOC vote by issuing an Executive Order to center racial justice in all your work! http://bit.ly/46racialjusticeplatform
