We are so excited to CONNECT with music therapists and music therapy supporters from around the world for Social Media Advocacy Month! As Andrew pointed out earlier this week, January is Social Media Advocacy Month. This is a time when music therapists share stories and advocate for our profession. It’s a time to remember that advocacy is for anyone. Advocacy happens everywhere, any day of the week, any time you are engaging in a professional capacity. You can advocate at every level, from grassroots in your community to state agencies and governors to national legislators. In fact, any opportunity and conversation is a way to advocate for the profession.
Come CONNECT with us! Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in January, the GCMT team will be posting one way that you can advocate for music therapy and increased access to quality music therapy services. If you didn’t catch out awesome infographic earlier this week, check out “The Reach of Music Therapy." In addition, keep your eyes peeled on Twitter and Facebook for a special project share from the GCMT team! We are cooking up something exciting!
In addition, the incredibly talented and thoughtful Ben Folds has decided to also make THIS WEEK and NEXT WEEK #FollowMTWeek on Twitter and Facebook. Let’s give a round of applause to Ben Folds for his impeccable timing ( “Like” Ben Folds on Facebook, “Follow” Ben Folds on Twitter)! So make sure that you “like” and “follow” some music therapists this week. After all, Ben told you to “Do It Anyway”! You will be sure to find some amazing articles, stories, videos, and blog posts related to music therapy. Don’t forget! Be sure to also follow the #mtadvocacy and #lovemusictherapy hashtags on Twitter to stay current with what’s happening. In fact, start advocating RIGHT now by clicking the "Tweet It!" button below!
