The FAIR SHAKE NETWORK is an association of West Virginians dedicated to the belief that diversity makes our communities stronger.  People with disabilities have the right to live, work, and play in their own homes and communities.  The Fair Shake Network provides training and systems advocacy on issues affecting people with disabilities through statewide, grassroots, cross disability activities.

FSN will support people with disabilities and their families in participating in the legislative process.

We feel that people with disabilities have the right to make informed choices and control their own lives.

People with disabilities have the right to take risks and live with the outcome of those choices.

Advocacy Through Social Media Workshop
September 15, 2014
WV Division of Rehabilitation Services
10 McJunkin Road
Nitro, WV  25143

Join us to:

Learn how you can use social media in your advocacy work to get information out to your constituency.  Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, You Tube, Pinterest are all tools you can use to get information, alerts, and updates out in real time.  When you are at the Capitol and something happens (or doesn’t happen) that requires immediate action, nothing will work as quickly for you as social media.  This training will help you maximize your use of social media and effectiveness in your legislative advocacy.

With Speaker:  Chuck Hamsher
