BCHF launches Step Up for History election outreach campaign

Help us give history a voice during the 2017 Provincial Election

The 2017 BC General Election is set for May 9, and the BCHF believes that support for the history of our unique and diverse province is an election issue.

stepup-smallWe invite our members to join us in our Step Up for History election outreach campaign, which we are officially launching today, April 12, 2017. A BCHF first, the campaign is intended to get voters and politicians talking about the importance of history to local communities, and to celebrate and support the work of our not-for-profit historical community.

How you can help:

To help us “step up” and make provincial history an election issue, we’re asking you to:

  1. Attend an all-candidates’ meeting in your community.
  2. Ask the candidates one or more questions from our official campaign outreach brief (PDF).
  3. Record the candidates’ responses and/or take photos.
  4. Share the results through social media, print media, our Campaign News & Results web page and more.

Find full campaign details — including an open letter from the BCHF President to party leaders — on our Step Up for History web site at https://www.bchistory.ca/community/step-up-for-history/.

Together, let’s “step up” and make history a conspicuous part of the pre-election debate.

We thank you in advance for your support and participation.
