The use of social media is an important aspect in communications especially in the hostile environment in which we organize. It is hard to break into mainstream media and we have to depend a lot on social media to inform.
Freedom and Roam Uganda (FARUG) seeks to engage you all in participation and discussions in our various social media platforms in the following ways:
There will be topics of discussions on our facebook page: Friends of Freedom and Roam Uganda from Monday to Sunday.
Monday: It is a day when everyone is seeking to better themselves financially be it through job searching or business. It’s on this day that topics will be based on professionalism and business. You can post a job advertisement, how to prepare for interviews, business plans etc.
Tuesday: FARUG as well as the entire Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community has many trials and tribulations and it’s a high time that we started telling our own stories. Be it hate crimes, discrimination or the Anti Homosexuality Bill (AHB). Email us topics or stories so that we can share them.
Wednesday: FARUG is an LBTI organization at the same time a feminist organization. Do you have related pictures and stories or videos; you can post these on Wednesday or just email us.
