We the people event

February 1, 2023 - A Rally for the Montana Constitution

For 50 years, the Montana Constitution has protected our rights and freedoms – including our right to a clean and healthful environment, our right to know what our government is doing, and our right to have a say in state decisions. Now it’s our turn to protect the Constitution from a small group of reckless extremists who want to dismantle our rights and freedoms during this legislative session.

We have a plan and a path to successfully defend this sacred document, but we can’t succeed if we’re not vocal! We need to let our legislators know how Montanans feel about our Constitution and inspire them do the right thing. Come rally with us!

We the People: Rally for Montana’s Constitution
Wednesday, February 1 at Noon
Montana State Capitol Rotunda in Helena

You don’t need to RSVP, but if you’re interested in giving a ride or getting a ride, please fill out this form and we’ll try to make that happen.
