Please do not move next years or any years Story Conference in the name of political expedience! There are no groups of people, communities, states or nations that have not had extremes of good, bad, ugly, beautiful, kind or cruel policies and behaviors. While right now, immigration and abortion seem to be the Mega-Issues that are dividing us, many others have held that dubious distinction in the past, and others are bound to arise.
If as an organization, we choose to avoid any place that supports positions that may be offensive to some, we will have a very hard time finding a place bigger than an isolated hot dog stand to meet! Please hold the next Conference where it can reach the Southern Region, then back to Kansas, and on to another region! That way many more of our vast and varied members can hope to attend!
