Activists Will Protest Trump’s Reckless Assassination of General Soleimani and Oppose Escalation of War with Iran

Montana Women For and Indivisible Upper Yellowstone invite you to gather at 5th St and Park St at 4:30 pm, January 9 to make visible a “No War” message as part of a national day of grassroots action in opposition to escalation of war with Iran.

WHAT: ‘No War’ grassroots visibility action
WHEN: 4:30 pm, Thursday, January 9
WHERE: 5th St and Park St, Livingston, Montana
HASHTAG: #NoWarWithIran

The nationwide actions are being organized by a coalition of groups including About Face: Veterans Against the War, Indivisible, MoveOn, the National Iranian American Council, and Win Without War. The day of action hub page, where activists can sign up to host or join actions, and where the public will be able to see a nationwide map of planned actions, is www.nowarwithiran.org

Park at Mayors landing, walk a quarter mile down the river

October 24th HRDC Community Needs Assessment Forum

Please attend the forum. Please also comment on the HRDC Community Needs Assessment at https://thehrdc.org/news-info/community-needs-assessment/.

MWF identified needs for:

  1. Improved mental health services and counseling
  2. Affordable housing
  3. Park County Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)

All police need Crisis Intervention Team training to help them de-escalate conflict and give them a larger set of skills. Park County also needs a crisis intervention worker to accompany the police on mental health calls. Gallatin County was funded last year for a Crisis Intervention Team, as a model and it’s very effective and helpful.

Info on Crisis Intervention Teams

PLEASE ADD IN YOUR COMMENTS THAT PARK COUNTY NEEDS A CRISIS INTERVENTION TEAM!

October 7th 6:30 pm Monthly Meeting

Livingston Park County Public Library Teen Room

Margie’s stone bench should arrive and be installed sometime late October on a grassy spot at the corner of the Mayors Dog Park trail along the Yellowstone River where Fleshman creek joins the river. We are tentatively scheduling a small gathering at the bench on November 17th.

Community wide forums discussing the HRDC Community Needs Assessment: The Livingston meeting is Oct 24, 6:30 at the Park County Complex. Karen will have information for us and encourages our involvement.

Our Voter Registration at the Food Resource Center resulted in two new voters registered, one verification of needed address change and two registrations sent home to be mailed in later.

MWF must have a yearly membership meeting around January. We will discuss future plans and ideas for next year’s leadership.
