Welcome to my blog, Crossing the Divide! I’ll be blogging here on occasion about important topics and timely issues. But first, a little background on The Montana Racial Equity Project or, as those of us heavily involved in our org call it, “MTREP” (pronounced Montana rep) because we like to save syllables. ;)
MTREP was begun in Fall 2015 with a Facebook page, a Twitter account and lots of support from folks all around Southwest Montana. We are gathering our documents in preparation for applying for 501(c)3 status with the Feds; all preceding steps have all been completed. It’s an exciting time for us!
In the meantime, we’ve been very busy in Southwest Montana with speaking engagements, classroom dialogue, actively supporting the creation of Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Bozeman, our popular Book Club (find it under “Events”), and more.
In the planning stages are workshops, more classroom dialogues, more partnerships, and more community seminars. Keep an eye out for additional blogs by volunteer advocates who have lots of thoughtful things to, well, blog about!
One may follow us on Facebook for informative posts and lively discussions. Click on the link, below.
I’ll see you here later. Keep climbing!
