WUFA, Women United for Action
For those not familiar with WUFA, it is a Lawton-based non-partisan group of concerned women who have banded together to pursue effective activism in opposition to the current Presidential and Congressional agendas. They organize activities to directly confront our elected officials through marches and protests as well as organized phone, email, and postcard campaigns. Its one more way to take action and be involved in the coming war for the soul of Democracy. Please contact marlenej <@> sbcglobal <dot> net to sign up for newsletters and calls to action.
Our next meeting will be August 24, 1:30 p.m., First Christian Church in Lawton.
There is going to be a protest against human detention at Sheridan Road and the Ft. Sill Gate at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 20. Watch the paper for more information.
One of our young WUFA members sent an email and asked us if we had ever thought about expanding WUFA. She said she was going to graduate in another year and would be interested in starting a WUFA group wherever she relocates! Wow! We were pretty excited about that!
We want to know what is on your mind! Please share concerns and joys with us as we work at staying attentive and not giving into the urge to turn off everything and zone out. WE CANNOT DO THAT!
- Why are our legislators so interested in eliminating abortion?
- Why do men lead the movement against Roe vs. Wade?
- Why do people continue to support Trump even though his economic plan is not helping them?
- Why does Oklahoma continue to refuse programs that will help our Oklahomans have better health options?
- Why does it appear that Lawtonians are not interested in a recycling program?
What are your questions?
See you one week from today, June 15!
Yes, there are Democrats in Stephens County, we are here and trying our darndest to get through to the citizens of Oklahoma that they do not have to settle for the second rate government they get from Republicans.
Cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.
