It Can Wait Day of Action in Alaska is tomorrow, Friday
Thanks to the continued support of It Can Wait® advocates in Alaska and across the United States, together we’ve inspired more than 5 million pledges to never text and drive. The movement has created strong momentum for change and needs your continued support to drive a groundswell in social media.
This month, we are asking you to join your many fellow advocates tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 19, for the It Can Wait® third annual day of action. Scroll down to learn more about how you can get involved!
I welcome your feedback.

Tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 19, is the It Can Wait annual day of action! We are proud to have more than 2,500 organizations, including many in Alaska, working with us to help save lives and empower change one text at a time.
The power of many voices and resources will help us end texting while driving in your community. Here are some easy ways to help:
Get the #X Out on our third annual day of action on September 19th. Start now by spreading the word on social media — Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with this sample post:
We pledge not to txt & drv as we gear up for the annual #ItCanWait day of action on 9/19. Share tips for not txtng & drvng with @ItCanWait
Promote and empower others to use tools like #X to help end texting while driving. Here’s another sample social media post to get the word out:
Post #X in social media, emails or texts before you start the car to let others know you are behind the wheel & can’t text. #ItCanWait
Include information about It Can Wait through your organization’s website, blog, newsletter or email signature.
Encourage your family, friends, community and colleagues to download an app, like the AT&T DriveMode®, which is available for Android and Blackberry users.
Share your ritual or post what you would tell a driver to not text and drive with a short video clip, meme or creative image on your social networks.
For the first time this year, individuals in Alaska can text their pledge! Text the keyword ICWAlaska to 464329. You'll receive a text response/confirmation! The pledge — and the text — are free!
