We are everyday Montanans who love where we live.
We are working toward a future where we live in harmony with nature, where our economy serves the people rather than the people serving the economy, where neighbors work side-by-side to build a world that lives up to our ideals of fairness, inclusion, and justice.
We stand up, shoulder-to-shoulder, to protect this place we all call home.
Everyday, Montana’s neighbors and community leaders are standing together to protect our natural landscapes and unique quality of life. Everyday, you have the chance to get involved in the issues you care about, whether it’s protecting our climate, expanding clean energy opportunities, or promoting a strong local food system. Your voice matters, and you have the power to make a difference. Get involved by taking action today!
