March 11th: The North Dakota Women's Network Proudly Presents:

WE Rise: Women Empowered

On March 11th, 2013, men and women from across the state are invited to participate in this exciting and FREE day to 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


UPDATE: The 1-94 Fargo Bus is FULL but gas cards are still available! Transportation for FREE from Fargo, Valley City, Jamestown, Minot or anywhere in between!  Let's show the North Dakota Legislature we care about the laws they are passing; which affect our lives, our families, and our communities! This event will demystify the legislative process and give you the tools to improve the lives of those you care about most.

Please join us in Bismarck!

A free light lunch will be provided with the opportunity to dine with your legislator.

Additionally, The North Dakota Women's Network is sponsoring an advocacy training and progressive women networking event on Sunday,  March 10th.

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?
