United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power will host a Twitter Town Hall this Thursday, August 15 at 3:00 pm EDT. From her @AmbassadorPower Twitter account, the Ambassador will respond to tweets and questions that use the hashtag #WhatMatters, originally introduced in her August 10th speech at the Fourth Estate Leadership Summit in Los Angeles. Members of the public are invited to submit ideas from now until Thursday’s Twitter Town Hall on how Ambassador Power and the U.S. Mission can best continue to promote American values, human rights and human dignity by using the hashtag #WhatMatters on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Ambassador Power is committed to engaging members of the public on issues of importance to them and on what they want the United States to stand for in the world. By broadening the foreign policy conversation, the Ambassador seeks to advance the United States’ work at the United Nations and amplify the voices of citizen activists across the world.
