Buses to Helena for Monday’s Gathering at the Capital
This post has and is being updated.
Why brave the ice and snow and cold alone – MEA-MFT is sponsoring buses to Helena, leaving from Missoula. Meet at the Adam’s Center at 8 a.m. Buses will return to Missoula by 5:30 p.m.
There are car pools being organized out of Butte, sponsored by MEA-MFT. I am working on more specific information.
There is a bus being organized by people in Deerlodge, which is apparently a rather organic situation – so I don’t have anyone there I can get specifics from on it – - but if you are in Deerlodge, contact a teacher or a prison employee or a union worker. They’ll know.
There are vans and car pools coming from Bozeman. Some are scheduled for 8, and they are currently working on possibilities for later departures. Still working on more specifics, but I have been told that you can call Morgan Smith at 773-515-4093 for info or to offer rides.
The Montana Organizing Project, a statewide coalition of non-profit organizations, churches, unions, and small business groups has put together a training session for Monday being held in concert with the Gathering at the Capital. M.O.P. members will spend the morning learning about how the legislature works, attending hearings, and visiting with legislators. They will then join the Rally to Save Public Services & Education at 2:00 (see below). CONTACT: Molly Moody, 406-529-8497
Pro-Choice Montana will also be holding a mini-training session also – in concert with the Gathering at the Capital. This legislative session, has proven challenging for reproductive rights as we face a record number of anti-choice attacks at the Capitol. It is important that we stand up against extremism and demonstrate that Montanans do not support bills that would jeopardize the health of our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends. You must register for this training. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email me at hotmail.
I will update this if and as I get info on other rides being offered across the state. If you have info, please below.
Did anyone catch Gov. Schweitzer on CNN this afternoon?
