Drive 4 Pledges Day

Media Advisory

What: Drive 4 Pledges Day

When: Today, September 19th – 2:00 p.m.

Where: Foot of Clinton Presidential Bridge

 

A movement is accomplished through the voices and actions of many. That's why Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola will join the It Can Wait campaign to urge people to share their commitment to never text and drive with others today. Mayor Stodola will read a proclamation today at 2:00 p.m. in front of the Clinton Library declaring it “Drive 4 Pledges Day.”

Individuals can sign up at ItCanWait.com to get resources that will help them share their commitment on social media and personalize the movement on the streets of their communities. Aspiring to create a social stigma around this dangerous habit of texting while driving, Drive 4 Pledges Day focuses on getting individuals involved in taking the pledge to never text and drive while encouraging others in their community to do the same..

Today, Drive 4 Pledges Day, supporters of the movement are called to help spread the word to their families, friends and communities.  Advocates are encouraged to do things like change their social profile photos and banner to It Can Wait graphics, and share their personal pledge stories using the hashtag #ItCanWait. Offline activations include hosting pledge drives and distributing posters in their schools, workplaces and neighborhoods.  All materials such as social graphics and posters are available for download from ItCanWait.com.
