We believe that in order to have a truly representative democracy, at least 50% of our elected leaders should be women. With targeted recruitment, excellent support and training, and help with fundraising women will gain equal representation in the Montana Legislature. When strong female candidates are on the ballot, women will turn out to vote in record numbers. Women’s voices matter. The influence of women office holders leads to the adoption of progressive policies which benefit our entire community.

DSA

DSA members believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. DSA is a political and activist organization, not a party; through campus and community-based chapters DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people. DSA is not a part of the Democratic Party: rather we work to elect people who share our values and vision regardless of party affiliation.
