July 12th 6:00 pm Windfall Film Showing

FREE MOVIE & COMMUNITY MEETING
Windfall Film
July 12th 6:00 pm
Livingston Public Library
ROSS CRANDALL, Eagle Expert and Research Biologist, will speak and share photos

We’ve been following the proposed Crazy Mountain Wind Farm, which would have impacted area residents, wildlife, and businesses, and are relieved to see that this project seems to have been tabled indefinitely. We’re concerned, however, that the project may resurface—or that others like it will be proposed in sensitive areas of Park and Sweet Grass Counties.

With that in mind, we’re planning a movie night at the Livingston Public Library. The movie we’ll be showing is “Windfall.” This documentary tells the story of a community in upstate New York that initially welcomes the idea of wind energy, but ultimately opposes the development of a wind farm in its neighborhood. The trailer can be seen on youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBYjZG8O6qE

Ross Crandall, research biologist at Craighead Beringia South, will give a brief talk on the area’s importance for nesting golden eagles, and the adverse effects that wind farms have on these magnificent birds. We’re hoping that a lively discussion will follow the showing of the film.

We invite you to join us on July 12th at 6:00 pm at the Livingston Park County Public Library Steveson Room downstairs for our showing of “Windfall.”

Montana Women For. . . is a 501(c)3 in Livingston, Montana. We’ve been working together for more than a decade to bring issues worthy of discussion to the attention of area residents. Please feel free to contact us with your questions or suggestions.

Demonstration Against Anti-Abortion Extremism – Tuesday May 21st, 4:30 – 6:00 PM, 5th Street and Park Street, Livingston

Part of a nationwide demonstration promoted by Indivisible National, MoveOn.org, ACLU, Planned Parenthood, NARAL and other national organizations.

Please join Indivisible Upper Yellowstone and Montana Women For as we take a stand against the GOP’s dangerous and outrageous push to restrict women’s health care choices by passing extremist abortion restrictions and outright bans. Women’s health care choices should be made by them, their families, and their doctors, and their right to unrestricted choice should remain protected by law.

Knock Down the House Film May 17th 6 pm Livingston Library

Free screening of Knock Down the House
“When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant to save her home from foreclosure. After losing a loved one to a preventable medical condition, Amy Vilela didn’t know what to do with the anger she felt about America’s broken health care system. Cori Bush was drawn into the streets when the police shooting of an unarmed black man brought protests and tanks into her neighborhood. Paula Jean Swearengin was fed up with watching her friends and family suffer and die from the environmental effects of the coal industry.

At a moment of historic volatility in American politics, these four women decide to fight back, setting themselves on a journey that will change their lives and their country forever. Without political experience or corporate money, they build a movement of insurgent candidates challenging powerful incumbents in Congress. Their efforts result in a legendary upset.”
