Not in Our State: Statewide Summit on Sexual Assault

The 4th Annual Not In Our State Sexual Assault Prevention Summit will be held on the University of Montana--Missoula campus at our University Center from November 8th-10th. This is a summit that brings together professionals, leaders and students from around the state to participate in an educational training program following best practices surrounding sexual violence. Montana universities and their surrounding communities are able to learn how to empower survivors of sexual violence and learn how to create a campus climate that is free from oppression. Attendees will learn how to provide a safe, supportive campus and community through education and primary prevention initiatives.

Out of Silence: Abortion Stories from the 1 in 3 Campaign

Inspired by real abortion stories, Out of Silence: Abortion Stories from the 1 in 3 Campaign confronts the cacophony of polarizing political rhetoric that surrounds abortion and instead asks us to listen to the voices of women and to explore with them the situations, relationships, emotions and logistics that contextualize their decisions to seek abortion care. Composed of a series of vignettes Out of Silence is at times heartbreaking, funny, and even commonplace but always thought provoking and honest. We will be co-sponsoring this event with Blue Mountain Clinic. The shows are free. The play will be performed at the Roxy Theatre on November 12th. 

The Panty Rock Drag Show

Our absurdly popular drag show and fundraiser for the Vagina Monologues. This event will take place Friday, January 30th.  More details to come.  

The Vagina Monologues

V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls by raising funds and awareness through benefit productions of Eve Ensler's award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues."  

The 'V' in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina.

The Vagina Monologues will be performed on Friday, February 12th, 2016 at 7pm.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at or at the door. 

In addition to the performance, we will be hosting a silent auction with goodies from over 40 local businesses!
