Give the Gift of EmpowerMT

Regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum, we can agree that this recent election has had a profoundly negative impact on how we treat each other. Barriers have risen between family, friends and neighbors, and there’s been a marked increase in identity-based harassment and violence across the country as well as right here at home.

Since the election we have seen a dramatic increase of hate speech. We have seen this with white supremacist harassing Jewish business owners in Whitefish and handing out Nazi propaganda in Missoula as well as reports of increased harassment of LBGTQ youth and youth of color in our schools.

EmpowerMT has been asked to respond and we have. In the coming weeks and months our team of trainers will be helping empower leaders across Montana with skills to combat hate and create a more inclusive society. This includes working with leaders and allies at Har Shalom in Missoula, leading community trainings in Missoula, Whitefish and other communities, as well as working with students and educators on the Flathead Reservation.

But we cannot do all this work with out your support. What better way to celebrate this season of peace and love then to make a donation to help fight hate. Consider donating in honor of a loved one, or asking for a donation in your name. There are two ways you can do this:
