‘Hate Has No Home Here’ campaign (posted 10/16/18)
Women’s Advocacy Group
Two events were planned for the month of October by the Women’s Advocacy Group (WAG) of Sublette County.
The first is a month long project called "Hate Has No Home Here." Anyone interested in displaying a yard sign with this phrase on it can get one for free or for a donation which will be used exclusively to pay for the signs. This project has nationwide coverage and a web site explaining the project in detail. "This sign is a public declaration that hate speech and hateful actions against others will not be tolerated by the person or organization displaying the sign. In that, it is non-partisan. This sign is a statement that, while it is okay to disagree with others civilly regarding issues, it is not okay to intimidate or attack a person or group—verbally or physically—based on attributes such as gender, ethnic origin, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation. The colors of the sign—red, white, and blue—are the colors of the American flag, not any political party."
Signs can be obtained by contacting Jana Weber at 307-367-3630 or Robena Downie at robenaatyahoo.com.
The second event took place at the Lovatt Room on October 9. At 7:00 p.m. a screening of a film called "Laramie Inside Out" by Bev Seckinger was shown. The topic included Wyoming’s most infamous hate crime, the murder of Matthew Shepard. "The film interweaves several stories: Shepard’s, that of his friends and members of Wyoming’s small but vibrant LBGTQ community at the time. Threaded throughout is Seckinger’s own story of growing up closeted in Laramie, graduation from UW and her decision to return in 1999."
The Women’s Advocacy Group is a group in its second year formed by people, men and women, whose goal is to create awareness of some of the national events that are influencing people’s attitudes and opinions. Some of the group’s projects include two women’s marches, a science march, two LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer) picnics, a peace and equality march after Charlottesville, a Puerto Rico karaoke fundraiser, a candlelight vigil for Florida shooting victims, phone banking for education funding, legislative bill tracking, Ms magazine subscriptions for legislators, collection of feminine hygiene products for free distribution at the Food Basket, and movies at the library.

Key facts about the flu vaccine, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Why should people get vaccinated against the flu?
Influenza is a potentially serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently, but millions of people get the flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands or tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect against flu. Vaccination has been shown to have many benefits including reducing the risk of flu illnesses, hospitalizations and even the risk of flu-related death in children.
Why do I need a flu vaccine every year?
A flu vaccine is needed every season for two reasons. First, the body’s immune response from vaccination declines over time, so an annual vaccine is needed for optimal protection. Second, because flu viruses are constantly changing, the formulation of the flu vaccine is reviewed each year and updated as needed to keep up with changing flu viruses.
Does flu vaccine work right away?
No. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza virus infection. That’s why it’s better to get vaccinated by the end of October, before the flu season really gets under way.
