While in the US, I am interested how social media is used to promote justice and peace by the UCC Justice and Witness Ministries. I was happy to talk to their online communications specialist Jessie Palatucci who is in charge of the ministries’ online communication.
Now peace in Syria is a pressing issue. Facebook and Twitter are updated several times a time to inform about the latest developments and petitions.
It is, however, not only information but also a enabling people to share their concerns easily. Their form-to-mail tool makes it really easy to send a personalized online petition to politicians, just click on the link on the tweet and fill in the empty fields and click submit. It is that easy.
