Support (and Wear!) Our Constitution
The Montana Constitution protects our rights. In the face of losing Roe v. Wade at the national level, Montanans still have a right to privacy, because it is specifically guaranteed in our constitution. This means that in Montana, you can still get an abortion. Our state’s Supreme Court has stopped Republican laws limiting our right to choose because of the strength of our constitution. However, if Montana Republicans win just two more seats in the state legislature, they will have the supermajority needed to change our constitution and take away our human rights. This is all the more alarming, considering that our constitution was written by a bipartisan group of delegates in 1972. It gives us other rights as well, like the right to a “clean and healthful” environment! To support the local, grassroots organizing that will hold these seats, and our constitution, buy a t-shirt! Our constitution tees contain every word of the document that is protecting our rights, because we know that each one is important.
Talking to our Neighbors
The Gallatin County Democrats’ primary role is to support Democratic values in our local community. In 2022, our focus is on getting out to talk to our neighbors as part of the Gallatin is Greater than Fear campaign. To combat political rhetoric that is based on fearing people who are different than us, government programs, science, and more, we are meeting people right where they are at — their front doors. Talking to your neighbors is one of the best ways to learn about what a better future looks like, make new friends, and change the systems that are keeping people like you and I down. We can win in November; we just need to start now! Are you with me?
