Ep. 12: Healthcare, Community Care, WE Care!
Play • 13 min

Comin' at you this week with all the usual suspects: voter suppression, student debt, threats to healthcare access, and continued attacks on trans Montanans. As we speed toward the end of the session, more and more bills are making their way to the Governor's desk. Be sure to follow us on Instagram for all the most up-to-date calls to action!

Coming up:

Tuesday, April 6 -- Join us and some of our partners for a virtual Public Lands Rally from 12-1pm. We’ll hear short speeches from Conrad Anker (climber, mountaineer, & author), Francine Spang-Willis (board member, Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Foundation), Rachel Schmidt (former director, Office of MT Outdoor Recreation), and Andrew Posewitz (sportsman & hunting ethics advocate). And we’ll remind our legislators to protect the lands we love.

If you identify as LGBTQ2S+, consider submitting art, writing, or a letter of support to our upcoming zine by April 9th.

If you need to be with other trans folks right now or if you are a parent of a trans, nonbinary, or Two Spirit child and want to talk with people who understand, email paxton@mhrn.org for information about support groups facilitated by the Montana Gender Alliance. If there is other support you need and can’t find, or if you have dreams for what community support could look like moving forward, contact Izzy at izzy@forwardmontana.org.
