In response, Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota has organized official I Stand with Planned Parenthood Days of Action at clinics in St. Paul, Rochester, and Duluth.

Security

We have a strict non-engagement policy with protesters.

Focus on what matters most—Planned Parenthood patients—and do not engage with opposition. Do not block sidewalk or street traffic. Please follow all law enforcement directions for safety and security, especially in event of emergency. Please do not bring items that could be interpreted as weapons or anything that is illegal. Bring small bags or as few bags as possible — backpacks are not allowed.

 

Be Prepared

This event is outdoors and may require some walking, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes and warm clothing. Show off your love for Planned Parenthood and wear as much pink as you'd like. You may bring your own signs, but please note that signs on poles or plastic pipes are not allowed and profanity or vulgar messages are discouraged.
