All across the country, states are passing laws to restrict and ban abortion, and Minnesota is not immune.
As our friends at UnRestrict.org remind us, in the last 14 years, Minnesota lawmakers have proposed nearly 400 new laws restricting abortion access, intimidating providers, misleading patients, and increasing costs. This year's legislative session was no exception, as anti-choice legislators proposed and signed onto laws that would ban abortions as early as six weeks.
Join us for a conversation about reproductive rights in Minnesota.

If 2018 was all about electing good leaders, 2019 is about advancing our progressive agenda.
But how do we do that? How do we track a bill's progress, and how can we help drive what we want forward? What does this part of the process look like, and what kind of power can individual citizen activists wield? And how can we wield it most effectively?
Great questions. And our fantastic panelists will have even better answers. See you soon.

June: Mobilizing for the Midterms Part 2
..with Dr. Alice Mann, Jillia Pessenda and Joelle Strangler
Thursday August 16, a couple dozen women gathered at Lake and Legends Brewing for Third Thursday. There was a lot of enthusiasm, some joy and a little sadness at the post-Primaries Third Thursday.
The Legislative session is over, and the party Conventions have kicked off the election season. This is what we’ve all been waiting for -- to vote the right people into power!! While voter turnout across Minnesota is definitely important (especially for the state-wide races), the purple suburban districts are arguably where this November will be won or lost.
