Our Key Issues

Kyle Jacobs and Daniel Demming introduce the Model UN program to Wyoming Rising members at recent WRN Open Meeting.

Generating Action Plans.

During the Open Meeting on September 10, committees of  Wyoming Rising–Northwest members met to identify key issues that they each felt were most critical this autumn. Below is the list.

In anticipation of the next Open Meeting, on Oct. 22, we ask you to consider which ONE of the issues within your group would best lead to an ACTION item. If your group, can’t meet until the Open Meeting, there will be a break-out session for discussion; however, give it some prior thought and research.

All of these issues are important but we need to translate them into ACTIONS in order to make a difference!
