Maggie Bornstein – Montana
Maggie Bornstein believes in all-hands on deck people power and that a more equitable Montana is possible. She is grateful to have lived and learned in Missoula, Montana for the past 5 years, where she earned a bachelor’s degree Cum Laude in African American studies, women’s, gender, and sexuality studies, and sociology. A passionate, working-class person, Maggie found herself called to act on a broad range of issues in her community whilst still in school.
Upon graduating, Maggie took her dream job at the Missoula Food Bank & Community Center where she works on the organization’s development team. She has also recently joined the board of the Susan Wicklund Fund. Before working at the Food Bank, Maggie worked at the Montana Human Rights Network as a research fellow to help bring awareness to the dangerous extremism and white nationalism in our backyard. During the 2021 legislative session, she worked for the Associated Students of the University of Montana as the organization’s student political action director, organizing on behalf of students. Through these experiences, Maggie has become impatient for change.
Her fight for a better tomorrow is inspired by the legacy of her late sister and the perseverance of her mother.
