Judy Shepard Speaks at Petroleum Club

Earlier today the Democratic Women's Forum of Casper held a luncheon at Casper's Petroleum Club discussing hate crimes and equality issues. The message shared at the event was especially effective as the keynote speaker was Judy Shepard, whose son Matthew is a hate crime victim. 
Around 90 people showed up to the event, had lunch, and held a question and answer session after Judy spoke about her fight against discrimination and hatred. Judy is also the former president of the Matthew Shepard foundation, which seeks to promote rights for homosexual members of society.
