Warm up those typing fingers and get ready to start chatting!
This September, in preparation for Mesothelioma Awareness Day on September 26, 2016, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) is putting our social media advocacy into high gear!
On September 12 and 26, from 12-1 PM ET, ADAO will be hosting #ENDMeso Twitter Chats where victims, experts, advocates, and concerned citizens can connect, share, and spread asbestos awareness. During each hour-long Twitter Chat, ADAO will tweet a series of questions about asbestos awareness and personal experiences with mesothelioma, sparking a global conversation about the dangers of asbestos.
ADAO needs you, the voice of the victims and concerned citizens, to join in this conversation and bring asbestos awareness to light! Currently in the United States, we are witnessing one of the most crucial moments in toxic chemical reform, and it is the closest we have been to an asbestos ban since 1989. Let’s capitalize on this momentum and build support to end the man-made disaster that is asbestos!
Join in by tweeting your answers to ADAO’s provided questions and responding to other participants. Be sure to use the hashtag #ENDMeso and connect with ADAO on Twitter by following @Linda_ADAO!
