Who We are

Family Oriented


We are a community group in western Montana organizing families to advocate for their future in the face of climate change.

Take action. create hope.

We’re responding to the urgency of the climate crisis, and to the despair and overwhelm that many families are feeling. We believe when families take action, they will feel more hopeful.

We're champion concrete actions that will make a difference, and help build a movement.

We started in western Montana when mother/poet/farmer, Winona Bateman, gathered a group of friends to discuss how to engage more Montana families with taking action on the climate crisis.


We envision a world where advocating for a livable climate is a necessary part of every family’s daily routine—part of their plan for the future.

We envision a world where all citizens can count on a healthy climate, strong economy and communities, and a thriving planet.

III. We rally around public officials committed to solving the climate crisis, and we challenge those who are not.

IV. We work tirelessly with local energy providers, particularly Northwestern Energy, to transition to 100% clean electricity by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050.
