We are Montanans Move to Amend, a Montana-based group of Move to Amend, and we are focused on making the corporate speech a campaign issue for the 2018 election.
Move to Amend is *thrilled* to announce that we have been invited to join Neil Young on his upcoming tour for his new studio album, The Monsanto Years.
Neil and team have invited 5 non-profits to join his tour to help raise awareness about the corporate takeover of farming and of our food supply, as well as climate change and other environmental issues, and Move to Amend is one of them.

The event will be in the west wing of the building, near Beckwith and Madeline avenues.
