I’d like to invite you take a few moments and revolutionize your Fourth of July:
On July 4th, 1776, a small group of people got together, made a declaration of independence, and set the wheels of history in motion. Today, the time is ripe for all of us to make our own declarations of independence.
Take 90 seconds and share *your* #DeclareIndependence message with us right now!
- Decide what you want to #DeclareIndependence from. Check out our Global Exchange #DeclareIndependence gallery for inspiration. We #DeclareIndependence from a lot: everything from “Rule by the 1%” to “war profiteering” to “Monsanto.” What makes sense for you?
- Share your #DeclareIndependence message on Facebook or Twitter:
On Facebook: Simply add your own #DeclareIndependence post or pic to the Declare Independence event page on Facebook. (and tag yourself to share).
On Twitter: Tweet using #DeclareIndependence in a statement or share a TwitPic.
Here’s a sample of what people like you have declared so far:
Over 20 organizations and hundreds of people just like you are already participating in #DeclareIndependence. Wondering why? Each person has a unique line to draw in the sand. In a world with plenty of harmful, obsolete, or exploitative forces to #DeclareIndependence from, it’s crucial to share our declarations and to listen to others.
We can’t #DeclareIndependence all by ourselves: we want to hear what *you* #DeclareIndependence from.
Together, we can make the revolutionary history of the United States relevant to our worldwide revolutions for peace, justice, and a better future.
Have a great Independence Day.
Hillary V Lehr
