THIS EVENT IS TO RAISE AWARENESS AND FUNDING.  Proceeds will go to THE IDENTITY PROJECT, empowering women with identity, and the HATCH student scholarship fund, broadening horizons for tomorrow’s leaders, both tax-deductible non-profits.


Who would you be without an identity?  In many countries, including the United States, millions of women are either unable to or prohibited from obtaining a simple ID, and have no legal identity.  IDs empower us to vote, apply for school, and travel – they allow us to invoke our basic human rights.  
Kimberley Motley has a revolutionary plan to use the law to make a seismic shift to empower and invoke basic rights for women around the world.  With an ID card, women have the right to a political voice, the right to work and the right to an education.  Without one, they sit in silence
THE IDENTITY PROJECT will get IDs to thousands of women. 
The impact by women in their communities will greatly improve our planet’s environment, as experts agree that an educated female is the most cost effective way of reducing emissions globally which would dramatically affect climate change.  



Kim had her eyes opened and went head first into fear to fight for justness for many who did not have the strength to do so for themselves.  She takes will take us on a transformative journey of what the world looks like through the eyes of another culture.  As a former beauty queen from Wisconsin, Kim has been a practicing attorney since 2003 she has worked in Afghanistan since 2008. She is the founder and CEO of Motley Legal Services, Kim represents clients on nearly every continent on criminal, commercial, and human rights matters. 
As a business owner, Kim considers herself as a global investor in human rights, investing at least 30% of her profits towards such causes.  Kim believes that by doing so it is her way to civilize the economy, and that economy should work for the good of the people and not the other way around.  She believes that an investment in human rights is a capitol gain on businesses.  Kim’s TED talk has been viewed over a million times and her work has been reported heavily in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, VICE, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, CNN, BBC, Reuters, the Today Show, and the London Times to name a few.  She currently has an award winning documentary entitled Motley’s Law that chronicles her life and work in Afghanistan.

Friday, March 16th will be the first of the HATCH signature series events at The Rialto Theatre in Bozeman, Montana.  These events will merge entertainment, inspiration, and action, bringing tangible results to important social issues that are challenging the balance of humanity.
The Rialto’s iconic building, erected in 1908 as a storefront and U.S. Post Office, became The Rialto Theater in 1924.  Flourishing in the Roaring 20s, the theater was renowned for silent film screenings, as its Art Deco marquee brought a bit of glitz to Main Street. Finding its personality, as well as its niche, The Rialto eventually shifted toward featuring more independent films. After sitting vacant for 10 years, the Rialto, under new ownership, reopened January 2018 in vibrant manner, completely restored with a modern vision and technology, acoustically designed by the acoustic engineer from Disney Music Hall.
