Minnesota volunteers needed to stop South Dakota's proposed abortion ban
Edited on Wed Sep-17-08 01:55 PM by MN Against Bush
If anyone has the first weekend in October free we need people to go to South Dakota to help stop a ballot initiative which would ban most abortions. The ACLU is providing transportation and all meals, the only cost to you would be lodging, and if you can't afford that there are scholarships available. If you have any friends who may be interested pass this information on to them as well, the ACLU is trying to find fifty more people to go on this trip so please let your friends know.

Be a Part of Defeating South Dakota's Abortion Ban!

With less than two months until Election Day, South Dakotans are neck in neck in the fight of their lives to protect reproductive freedom. Voters will be heading to the polls on November 4th to decide whether to ban virtually all abortions in the state. This is not the first time an abortion ban has appeared on the ballot. As many of you know, two years ago South Dakota voters defeated a similar ban.

The Campaign for Healthy Families needs your help to persuade South Dakotans to vote against the abortion ban. The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota will be sponsoring volunteers to go to South Dakota and talk to voters.
Join us the weekend of October 3rd- 5th in Sioux Falls, South Dakota

We're looking for volunteers who can arrive in Sioux Falls late Friday afternoon. We will phone bank Friday evening, knock on doors, and talk to voters all day Saturday and again on Sunday before traveling back Sunday afternoon (leaving Sioux Falls at 4 p.m.).

Travel, and most meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including vegetarian options) will be provided. There will also be lots of hot chocolate, coffee, and cookies for those hitting the streets and turning the tide in this critical election effort.

And best of all, you will be able to say that you were part of defeating South Dakota's ban on virtually all abortions and protecting reproductive freedom. Join us in Sioux Falls because freedom can't protect itself.
When: October 3-5, 2008
Where: Sioux Falls, South Dakota
What: Talking to voters directly

Transportation, and most meals will be provided. Lodging scholarships available on request.

Interested? Please contact Jana Kooren at the ACLU of MN at 651.645.4097, x.123 or email
