This weekend, NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota continued with our oldest running leadership program: the campus organizing program. This program has had a long tradition of training our future pro-choice and feminist leaders, and providing them with resources to organize on their campuses.
Our Campus Organizing interns convened for a day long training to help prepare for another semester of education and organizing. Grassroots Organizer Dan and Campus Organizer Dana co-lead the training. Alumni from the Campus organizing program joined us for a Q and A session and networking hour. Our student activists shared their highlights from last semester, work shopped their organizing difficulties, and planned their spring semester actions. It was an empowering day of leadership development and pro-choice politics!
