Photo Blog: Montana Student Activism Summit

The Montana Student Activism Summit was a one–day event dedicated to empowering young people and equipping them with the necessary tools to engage in environmental, racial, economic, and social justice issues across the state. The event brought together a diverse group of organizations, and focused on a range of topics. Throughout the day, the 150 student attendees were offered multiple opportunities for learning and engagement.

Pride Foundation sponsored the one-day summit, tabled at the event, and also provided a workshop on LGBTQ activism and the importance of involving young people in addressing the critical issues facing our community.

See below for a recap of the day through photos:
