West Virginia Small Business for Democracy is a group of small business owners who just want an even playing field for our businesses and our democracy.

We need a government responsive to all of us, and a system where the success or failure of your business doesn’t hinge on if you can hire a connected lobbying firm or make a huge donation.




Dan Davis and Hillary Harrision, Kin Ship Goods

Kin Ship Goods started with one t-shirt design and enough money to screenprint a shirt. When someone bought that shirt, owners Dan Davis and Hillary Harrison used the money to buy and print another shirt. It kept going like that for a few years in Louisville KY.

When Kin Ship outgrew their spare bedroom studio in 2014, Dan and Hillary moved the operation closer to family in Hillary’s home state of West Virginia. Putting down roots in the brick and mortar shop in Charleston’s Elk City neighborhood, Kin Ship is run with the help of a small and scrappy crew.


Emily and Betsy Sokolosky, Basecamp Printing Co

Base Camp Printing Co. is run by sisters and co-owners Emily & Betsy Sokolosky. Born and raised in Charleston, WV, they’ve been running the business together on the city’s West Side since 2017.
