We're in week five and there were some MAJOR hearings.

Big hearings this week relating to anti-discrimination, minimum wage, and refugee resettlement. NDWN worked with allies in organizing attendance and testimony. All of these bills have a tough journey to the best outcome.

The hearings are still going on late Friday afternoon. Show your support for New Americans and that ND is a welcoming community by urging the House Government and Veterans committee to make a DO NOT PASS recommendation on HB 1427.
Hearings of note for next week:
