ORGANIZER BIO:

Born and raised in Montana, I have seen the quality of our unique landscape compromised by natural resource extraction and non-renewable energy production. In the last year, I have found a life-long calling to work for climate change mitigation and adaptation. I study sustainable food and agriculture at the University of Montana, as well as being enrolled in the climate change studies minor. My organizational affiliations include University of Montana Climate Action Now (UM CAN) and 1000 New Gardens. I look forward to mobilizing Montanans to march for comprehensive state and national energy conservation and climate change policy. Join me on May 8th!

ORGANIZER BIO:

My father was trained by Al Gore to spread the word about climate change. Like many others I did not pay much attention to the problem. However, over the years the message began to sink in. Now I realize the extent of our problem. There is in fact something that both young and old can do to make a change for the better. Under the banner of the iMatter March we can rally together and make our voices heard. Please join us.
