Interfaith Candlelight Vigil
On Sunday, December 1st at 6:00 pm, Uinta County Say No, in partnership with Wyo Say No, will be hosting a candlelight vigil at Depot Square in opposition to CoreCivic building an Ice Detention Center in Uinta County, next to our beautiful Bear River State Park. We believe this prison will tear apart countless families in our community and our neighboring communities.
We have attended the county commissioner meetings and raised concerns about the human rights violations, and lawsuits CoreCivic is responsible for and we were ignored.
When we raise our voices to protect our community from being home to a neglectful private prison company that is so bad they had to change their name, it was called “whining and crying” by our elected leaders.
We have all seen the truth about these private prison companies because the evidence is easy to see and find. We know what this prison will do to our community and state which is why we will not give up.
We are calling on all those who are opposed to this prison to join us on December 1st. Now is the time to show up and speak out!
Depot Square / 920 Front St, Evanston, WY
Making our voices heard!
The Uinta County Commissioners have shown a lack of transparency and we should all be concerned that they weren’t forthcoming about ICE jail. They are making decisions without giving us an opportunity to have our voices and concerns heard and because of this its up to us to make sure our voices are heard. WyoSayNo members in Evanston will be attending every County Commissioners meeting, every City Council meeting, and every Economic Development Committee meeting to let the people who are pushing for construction of this what we in Uinta County really feel.
Regular County Commission meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 2:00 p.m. in the Commission Chambers at the Uinta County Complex in Evanston.
The Mayor and City Council Members meet for regular City Council Meetings on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 5:30 pm in the City Hall Council Chambers.
They also meet for Work Session Meetings, if needed, on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 5:30 pm in the City Hall Conference Room. No decisions are made by the group in these meetings, they are for discussion of items only.
