STUDENT VOICE PANEL: OCTOBER 26, 2:00-3:00 pm
Inspired by the service and activism of college students, Montana Campus Compact will hosts a panel of student change makers. Following recent events like the groundbreaking work of the college students (and other young people) who successfully brought a lawsuit against the state of Montana ( Held v. Montana ) in the summer of 2023, we were inspired to organize a panel to hear from college students directly about the issues that animate them, the needs they see, and the challenges they face. The panel will feature Held v. Montana plaintiffs, a Missing and Murdered Indigenous People activist and a community volunteer and organizer. Register here.
