We Need your opinion!  (We have fixed the link)


The Fair Shake Network (FSN) continuously seeks input from its members and partners to improve and impart the ideas represented within our mission.  We hold membership meetings, trainings, and an annual Disability Advocacy Day at the Capitol.  We distribute weekly email updates, Action Alerts, publish quarterly newsletters and a yearly Disability Agenda.  Additionally, the Fair Shake Network participates in the legislative process by educating our policymakers about issues affecting people with disabilities such as employment, inclusive education, ADA compliance, Health Care, funding of Supportive Services and many more.   FSN can only accomplish these activities with the help of its Board of Directors, members and community partners.  Recruitment of members is vital to the success of our organization; therefore, we are taking the time to learn more about our members by way of the enclosed survey.  Please take a few moments to complete and return to our office by June 30th.
