Attached is the tracking grid from the ND Women’s Network. As an organization, we may not be active on all areas but we will follow the progress. We will try to cover as many bills as possible. Only a portion of the expected bills have posted at this time. We’ll be updating this grid regularly, posting it on our website: www.ndwomen.org and sending in emails.
Bills are categorized, as best as possible, into topic areas: Political Participation, Economic Justice and Fairness, Reproductive Justice, Women’s Health, Education, Freedom from Violence, and Civil Rights. You can see a deeper overview of these topic areas and our position statements regarding them here: http://www.ndwomen.org/position-statements/

Registration for WE Rise is OPEN. The North Dakota Women’s Network (NDWN) is thrilled to provide an unparalleled, hands-on, educational experience for North Dakota women, right in our state’s capitol! For one day, March 9, 2015, we will host women from across North Dakota at the epicenter of our state’s legislative activity. WE Rise: Women Empowered will offer behind the scenes insights to the legislative process through meetings with local lawmakers, legislative briefings and trainings on how to lobby (and we will not forget the fun!). We will also host an advocacy training on March 8th. You can learn more and register at http://standupnd.blogspot.com/.
