Supporters Urged to Join Today by Texting "HRC" to 30644
WASHINGTON - In an effort to empower supporters to take action on important issues anywhere, at any time, the Human Rights Campaign today launched the HRC Mobile Action Network to deliver up-to-the-minute news and legislative action alerts directly to cell phones.
In an era of 24/7 news and information, the need to deliver important messages to supporters has never been more critical. By launching the Mobile Action Network, HRC can call on a virtual network of passionate supporters and alert them to take immediate action.
By texting the word "HRC" to 30644 from any cell phone, HRC supporters will immediately begin receiving important news and issue alerts. You can also sign-up at: http://www.hrcactioncenter.org/site/Survey?ACTION-REQUIRED=URI-ACTION-USER-REQUESTS&SURVEY-ID=1581.
"From hate crimes to marriage equality, HRC continues to rely on our supporters to help pass meaningful GLBT legislation in Congress and throughout the 50 states," said HRC President Joe Solmonese. "The HRC Mobile Action Network ensures that we will never miss an opportunity to mobilize supporters willing to spring into action and fight for what's right - all on a moment's notice."
The benefits of joining HRC's Mobile Action Network include:
Breaking News: From legislative developments to important HRC milestones, when breaking news happens, members of the Mobile Action Network are the first to know.
Action Alerts: HRC supporters can spring into action at a moment's notice. With the click of a button, supporters can dial in to radio talk shows, speak with newspaper editors, and even call their elected representatives with last-minute legislative appeals.
Supporter Engagement - Coming very soon, HRC supporters will be able to share their thoughts, vote in polls, send questions to "The Agenda" on XM Radio, hosted by HRC President Joe Solmonese, and see how HRC rates their member of Congress. Users will also be able to access HRC's Corporate Equality Index with in-depth analysis and ratings of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees, consumers and investors.
The launch of the HRC Mobile Action Network comes on the heels of new research from Princeton University and the University of Michigan showing that young voters who were sent text message reminders to vote were significantly more likely to vote than those who did not receive text message reminders.
