Paige Cohn grew up along the Big Dry Creek and sagebrush in Eastern Montana where she learned two things: always wear your boots in the field and people change the world one good deed at a time. That’s why she’s worked for a number of causes and organizations, including Planned Parenthood of Montana, the Montana Indian Language Program, and Project Alianza in Nicaragua. During the 2016 election cycle, she worked for Carol’s list, an organization that works to elect pro-choice, progressive Democratic women to the state legislature. Despite the current circumstances, she still believes the future is female. Currently, she serves on the Executive Board of the Montana Democrats while she prays to the graduation goddesses every night to let her finish her last semester at the University of Montana. When she’s not politicking, you can usually find her reading Joan Didion or trying to convince people to two-step with her.
