    Here's an idea (one of many) for spreading the word about ME while the film Unrest is getting media attention. It started back in October but people are still doing it.

    As the tweet says, take a photo of yourself holding a sign saying why it is Time For Unrest. And then post it on twitter or facebook using #TimeForUnrest as a hashtag.

    This project has been going on for a while but since this forum is new I thought it was worth creating a thread here.

    I'm not a fan of posting my photo online (it's not vanity, it's privacy) so I covered my face with the sign. Here's the first one I did:

    In that first one I hand wrote the sign. But my hands hurt afterwards because I kept messing up and having to re-write it! I learned that, for me, it's better to print out a sign.

    I did another one with a Halloween theme that I already posted in another thread - https://www.s4me.info/index.php?thr...conference-relevant-accessible.557/#post-9855

    My husband is also planning to take a photo holding a sign written from the point of view of a spouse (which I will post). Not sure when he'll get around to it but probably over the next week or so.

    Has anyone else on this forum done this? Want to share your links on this thread? Thanks!
