Women for Decency aim to raise standards

All women are invited to a meeting of Women for Decency Thursday, March 25, at 7:00 p.m. at the Northeast meeting room of the Logan Library. “This is a nonprofit organization formed to encourage the positive use of media and technology and to raise standards of decency for our community,” said Rachel Richins, Cache Valley District Leader of Women for Decency. “Also, we provide support for women who endure the pain of a loved one’s use of pornography.” Richins said the group’s mission statement includes three goals: training women to educate others, promoting community standards of decency and providing resources and professional help to women suffering the pain of a loved one’s addiction. “We just want to get a good working group of women together to learn what can be done, how best to help them,” said Richins. “We could have speakers come into the valley and teach us about wise use of the Internet and TV options. There could be the possibility of a women’s conference. We just want to get the ball rolling with the Thursday night meeting.” Richins said a related event — the UCAP Conference (Utah Coalition against Pornography) – is this weekend in Salt Lake City. It is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Little America. “This is the ninth annual UCAP event,” said Richins. “People from all backgrounds come together to try to establish and maintain standards of decency in our communities and promote safety for children and families.” Richins said the founder of Women for Decency, Jana Lyn Holt, will be a featured speaker at the conference.
