Montana’s public policy greatly impacts children and families, yet often policies are developed without fully considering the impact on children and without families’ participation in the process. We work closely with legislators to introduce bills that seek to help keep children safely with their families when possible and avoid the traumatic experience of entering foster care.

Personal testimony and public comment are CRUCIAL to getting important bills passed. When bills are being heard by the legislature, the public has the opportunity to share testimony and voice their support/opposition of bills. There are opportunities to testify in person, virtually, and by submitting a statement.
