Now is the time to take your post-election angst and plug it into on-the-ground activism opportunities in North Dakota!

This week both the United States Congress and the North Dakota state legislature ushered in a new session and we can expect renewed anti-choice efforts attacking reproductive health and access to abortion care.  Join us in January at any (or all) of these amazing events.
