Williams' Effect

2019 Montana Youth Organizing Summit

August 14, 2019

Pat and Carol Williams spent their years of public service lifting up the voices, accomplishments, and experiences of young people in Montana. We honor that legacy each year with the Williams’ Effect. During this annual celebration, we host the Montana Youth Organizing Summit and the 25 Under 25 Awards Ceremony.

The Montana Youth Organizing Summit brings young Montanans together from all corners of the state to build power, expand skillsets, and grow networks. We harness Montana’s long tradition of progress by hosting workshops led by Montana’s best community organizers, political professionals, and policymakers.
