Poe urges millennials to use Facebook, Twitter to influence politikos

Aug 12, 2017 @ 21:24

Senator Grace Poe is urging the youth to take advantage of the Internet and social media to influence lawmakers pass key measures that benefit them.

Speaking at Unilab Foundation’s National Youth Forum on Public Health in Pasig City, Poe said the youth should be a “positive force” for transformational change.

“Legislators and the youth can work hand in hand to effectively address concerns and issues,” the senator said.

“But you need to organize yourselves and let your voices be heard,” Poe said.

Poe said millennials have made the Internet their “home” and social media their “lifeblood” and as such, could use their curiosity and skills to tap these as tools to promote the interest of the community.

With the recent passage of Republic Act No. 10929 or the Free WiFi in Public Places Act, of which she is a co-sponsor, Poe said “millennials can have easier access to several web platforms to bring about change.”
