The Women’s Policy Leadership Institute is fun, diverse, and open to everyone! You’ll hear from policy advocates, community leaders, activists, and organizers about the high-stakes decisions being made in our state legislature. You’ll hear what strategies Montana Women Vote, partner organizations, and local leaders are using to advance policy change that makes Montana a safe and healthy place for low-income women, families, LGBTQ2S people, and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
