Who is your state representative? Do you know their name or their views? For many of us the state Legislature can feel far away and inaccessible. And for young Montanans like myself, it’s never been more important for our viewpoints to be heard by our decision makers. That’s why I am so grateful to state Reps. Kathy Kelker and Emma Kerr-Carpenter, and state Sen. Jen Gross for meeting with their young constituents.
As a field manager for Forward Montana, it’s my job to empower young Montanans to shape their democracy. One way that we do this is by setting up time for decision makers to discuss important issues with their Millennial and Gen Z constituents. To Kelker, Kerr-Carpenter and Gross, we truly our time with you and your commitment to building a Montana where young people can thrive. Thank you for listening to our concerns for the future.
Reach out to you local representative and thank them for their public service and make sure your voice is heard in Helena this year.
