Why do you love Forward Montana?

Because civic processes – registering to vote, voting, communicating with elected officials to hold them accountable – is the lifeblood of functioning, flourishing democracy. We (America, Montana) have yet to really achieve a robust civil society because, for far too long, access to these processes has been allocated to the few and denied to the many, including young people, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, working-class people, etc, and FMT seeks to make these processes not just technically accessible, but fun and exciting.
