March 9th: The North Dakota Women's Network Proudly Presents:WE Rise: Women Empowered

On March 9th, 2015 women from across the state are invited to participate in this exciting and FREE Women's Lobby Day. The event will demystify the legislative process and give you the tools to improve the lives of those you care about most. We will learn, lobby and link with the members of the North Dakota Legislature.  

We want our voices to be heard on important women's issue such as:
Freedom from Violence

Economic Security
Reproductive Health

Ride our We Rise bus- transportation for FREE from Fargo, Valley City, and Jamestown or anywhere in between! Travel stipends available from other locations. A lunch will be provided with the opportunity to dine with your legislator.

Let's show North Dakota's State Legislators that we care about the laws being passed- which affect our lives, our families, and our communities!


But wait! There's more!

The North Dakota Women's Network is also sponsoring an Advocacy Training and progressive women networking event on Sunday, March 8th.

Are you interested in learning the process of grassroots organizing? Are you interested in meeting North Dakotan's working toward change? Do you want to network and learn more about the political process?
