Join NARAL Pro-Choice America National Political Director Nicole Brener-Schmitz and NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota for an afternoon of canvassing on behalf of Angie Craig, the pro-choice endorsed candidate for Minnesota’s second congressional district.
Angie Craig is running in a competitive district against Jason Lewis – the same Congressman who once complained about not being able to call women sluts anymore. In this increasingly critical midterm election, Angie is the fierce champion for reproductive rights we need representing Minnesota’s second district.
The canvass training and door knocking will take place in Northfield, Minnesota – a specific location for the training will be announced shortly. Check out the schedule of events below, and please RSVP by signaling that you are “Going” to this event. We can’t wait to see you there!

Join NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota for a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary RBG which celebrates the legacy of Supreme Court Justice and reproductive rights champion Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As the second woman ever to be appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States, RBG has played a critical role in crafting the legal precedents that defend abortion access in the United States.

For more than a decade, NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota has trained clinic escort volunteers who help women safely into their local abortion provider. Clinic escorts are a friendly face and a safe barrier between patients and the anti-choice protesters who harass women outside of clinics. NARAL has trained hundreds of volunteers for our Minneapolis and Robbinsdale clinics – and we’re inviting you to become one of them.
Join us on October 17th at our office in St. Paul for a clinic escort training. Here, you can learn the history of clinic escorting, the logistics of working with Minneapolis providers, and how to handle clinic protesters. After the training, you’ll have the opportunity to sign up for specific escorting dates.
Space is limited, so you MUST sign your name on the official RSVP if you plan to attend. If all the spots are full, we ask that you plan to attend another training.
