“…to improve the quality of life, equality of opportunity and to secure the blessings of liberty for this and future generations…”

These words from Montana’s Constitution are not hollow. In some way, all of us want to leave something for those who come after us: treasured family heirlooms, a home for their children, words of wisdom. We want to leave a piece of ourselves behind for them to remember us.

But for the youth of Montana, the inheritance they may receive could be one of hardship, destruction, and climate chaos.
