Those who attended CERA conference were courageous

Jun 27, 2014 - Elaine Willman, CERA Board Riverton Event Coordinator

Editor:

On behalf of Citizens Equal Rights Alliance, I want to thank the courageous members of the Riverton community who were curious and willing to attend the educational events that CERA conducted in your community.

It is a dark time in our country when discussing the U.S. Constitution and the right to be left unfettered by private governments in which we may not participate are such fearful topics.

Fear is paralyzing. So is the absence of information. As the only national organization to bring daylight to federal Indian policy, CERA has grown immensely, even in spite of ongoing ugly and targeted name calling. Much like innocent students subjected to proverbial bullying in the schoolyard, CERA just moves forward.

We were very impressed with the friendliness of the Riverton community, and the informal support that allowed Wyoming, Fremont County and its communities to hear new information and different points of view. Thank you very much for the courtesy and respect provided to our organization. In the near future, interested citizens will be able to obtain a CD of our June 13-14 event at the Fremont Center, by going to our national website: .

We wish you wonderful folks of Fremont County the very best in your future local decisions that will have long-term and far-reaching impacts on Fremont County's future.

Elaine Willman,

CERA Board Riverton Event Coordinator

Gresham, Wis.
