Anti-Social Media

At Monmouth Patrons, we believe that many social media and large technology corporations are hurting local small businesses, so we’ve decided to avoid using these services to the best of our ability. We understand this will potentially make it more difficult for us to communicate with the members of our community, but we feel it is the right thing to do and aligns with our values. We are not discouraging others from sharing our communications on social media, but we will not participate directly. This website provides us with all the tools we need to keep in contact with our members.

For more information about how these corporations are affecting local small businesses, we’ve shared a few links below.
