Ep. 9: Separation of Church and Hate ft. Laura Terrill
Play • 35 min

As we launch into the second half of the legislative session, there are still plenty of bills on the chopping block. In this episode, we cover updates on discriminatory "religious freedom" bills, the Native American Voting Rights Act, Missing and Murdered Indigenous People, and (more) bills benefiting only the wealthiest Montanans. PLUS, we talk with Laura Terrill from Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana about her hopes, fears, and what this session could mean for reproductive healthcare in the state. If you already read our written newsletter and want to jump straight to this interview, skip to 12:30!

March 16- We’re Here, We’re Queer, We’re Really F*cking Tired - a space for LGBTQ+ Montanans to vent, dream, and plan together
