Pick a challenge that Montanans are grappling with, and you’ll probably find that it’s one where many issues intersect. Solving the problems we care about often requires making connections across issues and seeing beyond boundaries. Montanans have a deep sense of connectedness, to the land and to each other. We know that good things happen when people come together to work on tough issues, and it all starts with a conversation.
