All attendees are required to bring a face mask and encouraged to bring hand sanitizer.

Per the Montana Racial Equity Project:

We are advocating for freedom from police and the investment in people of color, support for Black and Native Bozeman, and that Bozeman businesses end discrimination, stop turning a blind eye to racism in their spaces, and engage in Education and training on anti-racism and anti-oppression.

Last Sunday, May 31st, approximately 2,000 people rallied in Bozeman in a peaceful demonstration from Bogert Park to downtown Bozeman. See photos from Sunday's rally in Bozeman HERE.
