McCain Institute Launches #McCainMemories Campaign to Honor the Life and Legacy of Senator John McCain
Join us and spread the word to your community
This week, in recognition of the fourth anniversary of Senator John McCain’s passing and what would have been his 86th birthday, the McCain Institute is launching a social media campaign celebrating his life of leadership and public service.
This comes on the heels of President Joe Biden posthumously awarding Senator McCain the Presidential Medal of Freedom at a White House ceremony earlier this summer.
Over the next week, the McCain Institute’s social media accounts will share stories from those who knew Senator McCain best and highlight some of his most memorable speeches from his long career. The campaign aims to start a conversation about what his voice would have meant during turbulent times like these and to keep his legacy alive with the next generation.
“In today’s volatile and increasingly dangerous world, where authoritarianism is on the rise, Senator McCain’s voice is deeply missed,” said McCain Institute Executive Director Dr. Evelyn Farkas. “Every day at the McCain Institute, but especially this week, we are proud to echo his words and actions in support of oppressed people in Ukraine, Russia, Afghanistan, China and many more places around the globe. Just like Senator McCain, we will fight through our programs to promote democracy and human rights and prevent targeted violence at home and abroad.”
This week’s campaign will also feature “Senator McCain Trivia,” which can be found on the McCain Institute’s Instagram page in the stories section. To get involved in the campaign, please share your own memories, photos or quotes of Senator McCain using #McCainMemories.
