We’re doing politics as it should be. It’s working. 

At TakeAction Minnesota, we came into this election season clear on the stakes and challenges of this moment. At every level of government, we know that we need more than Democratic majorities to protect our reproductive rights, climate, and democracy. We need progressive leaders in office who will be champions with us to transition from fossil fuels, transform public safety beyond policing, build a caring economy, and deliver reproductive justice.

Our fundamental rights are under attack. We’re not going to take it.  

Demanding leadership from our congressional electeds has never been more important. We need the U.S. Senate to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act and the Ensuring Women’s Rights to Reproductive Freedom Act, which would codify Roe v. Wade into law and reaffirm the right to travel across state lines freely to access abortion.
