October Volunteer Clinic Escort Training
Join us on October 19, 2020 via Zoom 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
Phone Bank with NARAL
NARAL Pro-Choice MN is hosting our own phone banks this election season! Phone banking is a fantastic way to encourage people to vote for pro-choice champions at the state level, and is more important than ever since door to door canvassing is no longer an option. Phone banks will be held starting this week on Thursdays from 6-9 pm, Fridays from 1-4 pm, and Sundays from 1-4 pm. Even if you can’t stay the whole time, we’d love to have you come make some calls for a couple hours!
Circle the Courthouse to Honor Justice Ginsburg
Art Salon V
The Twin Cities are blessed with an incredible arts community. And some of those amazing artists are gathering to support abortion access!
Join NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota for a virtual auction on Thursday, August 27th for our 5th annual Art Salon. Hop online to admire and purchase the work of local artists to support reproductive freedom.
While in past years 100% of the proceeds have benefited the work of NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota, this year we’re all in this together. Minnesota’s only reproductive justice organization, Our Justice, will receive 19.67% of money raised (to celebrate the year they were founded). We’ll also be offering 20% of an individual artist’s sales to the artist. Police brutality, racial injustice, and COVID-19 have decimated communities, and we need to support each other more now than ever.
Reproductive Freedom Book Club
Have you been wanting to join a book club, but not known where to start? We’ve got you covered! Join our first ever book club where you’ll be able to engage with fellow reproductive freedom activists, have thoughtful discourse, and learn from each other.
We’ll meet virtually every two weeks on Zoom (for the time being) to discuss a designated section of our chosen book.
Our current selection is Reproductive Justice: An Introduction by Loretta Ross. About the book: “Reproductive Justice introduces an intersectional analysis of race, class, and gender politics. Clearly showing how reproductive justice is a political movement of reproductive rights and social justice, the authors illuminate how, for example, a low-income, physically -disabled woman, living in West Texas with no viable public transportation, no healthcare clinic, and no living-wage employment opportunities, faces a complex web of structural obstacles as she contemplates her sexual and reproductive intentions. Putting the lives and lived experience of women of color at the center of the book, and using a human rights analysis, the authors show how reproductive justice is significantly different from the pro-choice/anti-abortion debates that have long-dominated the headlines and mainstream political conflict.”
When: Every other Tuesday starting July 22nd from 6:00-7:00pm
Where: Zoom online meeting (Info will be provided upon receipt of R.S.V.P.)
