Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Gals Against Smog and Pollution: Montana Women Take on Polluters

By: Women’s Reproductive History Alliance (WRHA)

NEW EXHIBIT – Concerns about reproduction extend beyond the physical body; care for the earth centers on fertility and ecological health. Montana women organized to take on polluters in the Missoula area and formed Gals Against Smog and Pollution (GASP) in 1968. Their work brought attention to environmental devastation caused by local paper mills, successfully improved air quality, and strengthened the Montana Constitution’s environmental protections. GASP inspired the work of Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE), a Missoula non-profit that continues to champion environmental health and the well being of women, families, and children.
