Empower Montana Annual Report – 2016-17

Empower Montana Annual Report – 2016-17

Dear Empower Montana Supporters,

As we reflect on our first full year after changing our name to Empower Montana, we are reminded of the value and urgency of our work. . There has been a dramatic rise in racism, homophobia, religious intolerance and other harmful violent acts across our state. Empower Montana has been able to equip and empower people to become leaders in ending individual and institutional prejudice and mistreatment; to increase understanding of difference; and to develop skills to act as active allies.

We worked with educators and administrators at Polson High School to deepen understanding of oppression and its impact on their students. We hosted Building Inclusive Communities trainings in five cities across the state with local partners to inspire action and build community. And we continue to elevate the voices of LGBTQ youth around issues like Transgender Equality and Youth Homelessness.

Over this year we have embodied our new identity as we have empowered more leaders and expanded our impact to communities across Montana. We could not do this work without the dedication of our amazing donors, volunteers, and staff. Thank you for working in solidarity with us to create a more just and inclusive Montana.
