For Trans and Non-Binary Folks

For our transgender, gender non-conforming, and intersex community members: We recognize that this can be an incredibly stressful time. The Free and Fair Montana coalition is working alongside members of the community and are committed to protecting your rights and fighting for your wellbeing. You are important, valued, members of our community.

If you are interested in getting involved with this effort please contact Shawn Reagor at Shawn@mhrn.org.
