Spring into Action

Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund’s 2024 goal is to reach 750,000 critical voters to re-elect our pro-choice majority in the Minnesota House this November. Our legislative champions have been working towards providing every Minnesotan with the vital health care and sex education they deserve. Securing the House for another two years will mean the ability to implement more improvements and block dangerous bills that would reverse our shared accomplishments.

We need your support to continue to protect and secure reproductive freedom for all.

Join us for our annual gathering, Spring into Action, as we celebrate our collective accomplishments, hear from leaders who are advocating for reproductive freedom, and look to the future.
