One of the presenters at the recent two-day legislative forum sponsored by the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce was Bonnie Young, Executive Director of the Advocacy and Resource Center in Sheridan.

Young gave a history of the center and explained that their mission is to empower those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and other forms of violence to realize lives of choice, safety and freedom.

Senator Bruce Burns and Young had this exchange regarding funding for the center.

The two-day forum featured presentations before local legislators from over 30 different local organizations in anticipation of the Legislature’s General Session that will convene in Cheyenne on January 10.
