“We Love Where You Live” is at the heart of the Michigan Municipal League’s mission. To celebrate the power and uniqueness of Michigan communities, the League is creating a #WeLoveWhereYouLive social media campaign.

How Does the Campaign Work?
Throughout the month of July, we are encouraging members to go on Facebook or Twitter and post a photo and short description of something they love in their community, using the hashtag #WeLoveWhereYouLive. These pics can highlight a wide range of cool things in your community. Here’s a few examples:

  • A selfie in your favorite coffee shop
  • A pic of you walking your dog along your favorite street
  • A snapshot of a wonderfully restored building in your downtown
  • A photo of people enjoying a favorite park, music, or art event

Use your imagination! There are bound to be plenty of photo-ops in your community.

What’s in it for You?
First, you get to show off your community to a big audience on social media. And second, we hope to feature some of your amazing photos in the League’s magazine, The Review. Then your community’s story will reach a statewide audience of city officials, legislators, and business people.

So. get your brain in photo mode! Start thinking about how to frame a great shot of something that makes your community special. Then post those pics from July 1 all the way to the end of the month. And remember to use the hashtag #WeLoveWhereYouLive.

We can’t wait to see what develops!
