Last Saturday, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power delivered her first public speech at Invisible Children's Fourth Estate Leadership Summit and asked the public #WhatMatters to them: "I want to hear from you about what matters. The issues that ignite your passion. Your efforts to deliver the impact that we all crave. What you need and want the United States to stand for in the world. So tweet me, Facebook me, Instagram me."
The response so far has been tremendous. Hundreds of individuals have shared their thoughts on #WhatMatters, with responses ranging from Syria to Sudan and extremism to environmentalism. To address the overwhelming response, Ambassador Power will respond to tweets in real time during her first Twitter Town Hall Thursday, August 15, 2013, at 3:00 p.m. (EDT).
Tweet at @AmbassadorPower using the hashtag #WhatMatters before or during Thursday’s event to make your voice heard. As Ambassador Power said last week, “It turns out YOU have the power.”
