Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day, Rally for the Equal Rights Amendment, and more news

January 30, 2024

Check out what’s new with UnRestrict Minnesota!

Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day

After last year’s huge wins to ensure Minnesotans have the legal right to reproductive freedom, we must keep the momentum going to secure meaningful access to reproductive health, rights, and justice in Minnesota.

At Lobby Day, you will learn from leaders in Minnesota’s reproductive freedom movement about the historic progress we’ve made and the work that’s ahead, receive training and resources to prepare for meeting with your state legislators, and network with fellow community members. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided. The day will culminate with a rally in the Capitol rotunda at 2:00 p.m.

Sign up to join us!

Rally for the Equal Rights Amendment

Minnesota’s 2024 legislative session is right around the corner, and one of the critical fights will be for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to be added to the state constitution. The ERA would be a major stride forward for bodily autonomy and gender equity, and to kick things off right, our partners at ERA MN will be holding a rally to demonstrate the widespread support for this amendment!

Join us on Monday, February 12 at 10:00 a.m. in the Capitol Rotunda!

Saying No to Anti-Abortion Centers

Over the weekend, MN Abortion Action Committee (MNAAC) held a protest at Abria Pregnancy Resources, an anti-abortion center in North Minneapolis. Like all crisis pregnancy centers, Abria uses scare tactics and misinformation to make abortions seem like a dangerous and life-altering procedure, but we know that abortions are a safe and normal part of healthcare! We need unbiased and accessible healthcare in the Northside.

Capitol Tour and Storytelling Event

Join the Pro-Choice Minnesota Reproductive Freedom Action Network for a Capitol Tour and Storytelling Event on Saturday, February 3. We’ll start with a tour of the full Capitol grounds from the MN Historical Society to get to know the lay of the land. Then we’ll head to Moscow on the Hill to practice telling our stories about our experiences with reproductive health care so that we are all ready to advocate for the freedoms we so deserve.

The event starts at 1:00 p.m., and you can sign up here!
