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. Learn what laws already exist, which laws were proposed by our two (very different) houses of state government this session, and all about the fight beginning in our courts as pro-choice groups go on the offensive.
Most importantly, come learn what you can do to get involved.
- Erin Maye Quade, Gender Justice

- Planned Parenthood (specific panelist TBD)
