Indian People’s Action (IPA) works in Montana urban areas to organize for social, economic and racial justice. Indian People’s Action is being very deliberate through its training and listening sessions to cross the boundaries of race and class among those attending sessions. Thus from early on in the organizing process everyone – from the faith community, to labor, to the community – is hearing about the unique concerns and issues of communities of color and economically distressed people, particularly Native American concerns (the largest community of color in Montana). The Listening Session approach provides everyone with a relational context to learn about the issues.
