2017 was a heck of a year!
We knew from the start that it would be challenge after challenge, and the year certainly lived up to that expectation.
But we met each one with grace, good humor, and a fierce determination — thank you.
To close off the old year and welcome in the new, check out a few highlights from the last couple months of 2017.
And for 2018 — stay fiercely fabulous, fellow feminists!
2017 was a heck of a year!
We've had a busy summer here at NARAL. The field canvass took a field trip (ha!) to Duluth; our grassroots organizer and volunteers celebrated Pride across the state; we had an amazing night out at the second ever Art Salon; and we announced Lindy West as this year's keynote speaker for Power of Choice.
Now the leaves are changing, the weather seems to have made up its mind and started cooling down, and school has started back up — including for our rockstar campus reps. So break out your sweaters, get yourself a pumpkin spice latte, and settle in with the August/September edition of Abortion, Advocacy, and Action. It's got summer highlights and profiles of four of the campus organizers and the work they're looking forward to this year.
Getting a running start on the summer!
With our annual Run for Your Rights 5k Run/2.5k Walk, we fought off the last chill of Minnesota spring — and the lingering stress of legislative session.
Check out our June/July Newsletter for more about the Run, our campus organizers, and what we're thinking about looking forward.
Reminisce about running through the rain for our rights, read about college students standing against a predatory crisis pregnancy center, and ready yourself to reach out in 2018 — and any other alliterative benefits you can find in the current issue of Abortion, Advocacy, and Action!
How do we change the world? One conversation at a time.
And that's exactly what we're doing at NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota right now. Check out our April/May newsletter to find out more!
Highlights include all the magic of Pro-Choice Lobby Day, a glimpse of our artistic prowess, wise words from choice champions in Minnesota, and the fighting spirit that keeps us all coming back to this fight.
So go forth! Check out what we've been up to and catch a sneak peak at upcoming events. And when the going gets tough, when every politician in the country seems to be against us, when the attacks just won't stop coming, think on these words from Rep. Erin Murphy: "We represent a legacy that is our past, and we must carry it forward into our future."
Carry it forward with me.
When every day seems to bring news of another attack on reproductive rights in the US, it starts to feel impossible to fight it all — or even to keep track.
That's why we're bringing back the NARAL Newsletter: Abortion, Advocacy, and Action. Every month, you can check out legislative updates, get a look at what our staff, volunteers and members have been doing, and find new ways to get involved.
We've got quite the fight ahead of us — and we're not backing down. Check out our March Newsletter here!
