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.”
