The Prairie Abortion Fund (formerly known as the ND Women in Need Fund) is holding its annual fundraiser on Friday, January 19.

The clinic became an UnRestrict Minnesota coalition partner when it was forced to move from Fargo to Moorhead after the Dobbs decision.

This fundraiser is the perfect opportunity to connect with community, hear about Prairie Abortion Fund’s advocacy work this past year, and eat delicious desserts in the name of funding abortion. This is a ticketed event so be sure to secure yours before January 17, 2024 here.
