The Montana Interfaith Network (MIN) is a faith-led network that was founded in 2015 following the shootings at San Bernardino and Colorado Springs, in which numerous people were killed in the name of hate. In response to these events, dozens of clergy and faith leaders came together to make a stand against violence and injustice, thus creating the first multi-denominational and faith-led movement in central Montana.
Progressive clergy are an effective and powerful force in social change movements and are a vital voice in the conversation.
The Montana Interfaith Network brings together progressive clergy of all denominations and backgrounds to support and educate each other, as well as advocate for progressive issues in Montana.
In the past year, MIN has hosted and/or been involved in the past activities:
- Letters to the Editor in support of LGBTQ-inclusive communities and pro-choice legislation
- Editorials in support of refugee resettlement in Montana
- Faith-based mentorship for the Great Falls LGBTQ Center
- Lobbying at the Montana legislature to amend the Human Rights Act and block bills that would harm a women’s right to choose
- Vigils in remembrance of the victims of the anti-LGBTQ shooting in Orlando
- The Prayer Vigil against Violence to commemorate victims of the San Bernardino and Colorado Springs shootings
