There's an effort on social media to combat negativity surrounding a Wisconsin community that's been thrust into the spotlight since "Making a Murderer" was released.

Terry Stevenson, who works in advertising, started the #LoveManitowoc campaign over the weekend to spread word about all the good things happening in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, NBC 26 reports.

It's an effort to fight all the negativity surrounding the area following the December release of the hit Netflix series, which raised questions about Steven Avery's guilt in the 2005 murder of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach, and how law enforcement officials in Manitowoc County handled the investigation.

“That image that is portrayed is not what Manitowoc is all about,” Stevenson, sales manager at Seehafer Broadcasting Group, told WBAY.

The hope is that people will use the hashtag on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to show all the positive things the city has to offer.

Here's a look at some of the posts (although they're not all positive):
