Lobby Day and Roe Rally in Helena!

Lobby Day

Thursday, January 22, 8:00 am
Montana Capitol, Room 335

Talk to your legislators about supporting reproductive rights and health! We’ll train you on effectively lobbying your legislators and give you an inside briefing on current bills related to reproductive rights and health. After meeting with your legislators you will also have the opportunity to have lunch with pro-choice elected officials.

To attend Lobby Day, register with Lisa at mtnaral@mt.net.

Following our morning of lobbying, we’ll meet in the rotunda for our annual Roe Rally with the Montana Reproductive Rights Coalition.

Roe Rally

Thursday, January 22, 1:00 pm
Montana Capitol Rotunda

Join NARAL Pro-Choice Montana and the Montana Reproductive Rights Coalition to celebrate 36 years of Roe v. Wade!

Last year over 200 people attended the Roe Rally, and we used that energy to kick off a campaign to defeat an attempt to ban abortion in our state constitution. We need your energy and support to have a successful legislative session where we beat back attempts to restrict reproductive rights and advance access to health care, birth control, and sex education. This is a great way for you to show your support for reproductive rights and health in Montana and demonstrate the power of Montana’s pro-choice majority.
