TSC Global Awareness Day Proclamation Campaign
The TS Alliance urges U.S. residents to help increase awareness in your local communities by having your mayor or other city official issue a proclamation declaring May 15 as TSC Global Awareness Day. We have made this easy for you by providing everything you’ll need:
Identify your mayor or other city official, then contact their office to inquire how to get an official proclamation. Here’s a sample letter you can use. Be sure to customize it with your personal TSC story.
Provide the city official with this TSC Global Awareness Day Proclamation template.
When the proclamation is issued, ask the city official to take a picture with you so you can share on social media and provide to your local newspaper, radio or TV stations.
Send the picture and this sample news release to you local media and ask them to run a story about your TSC story and the local proclamation.
Let the TS Alliance know your results by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include any links to online news stories we can share on social media.
