Saint Paul, Minn. (July 18, 2023) – Today, Women Winning, Minnesota’s largest women’s  political organization, announced a second slate of endorsements of Duluth and Minneapolis pro-choice women running for City Council in 2023. 

“With the gains made in the Minnesota Legislature in 2023, our second slate of pro-choice champions will tirelessly seek to build on the momentum created at the statewide level to expand abortion access in Duluth and Minneapolis,” said Britta Moen, Women Winning Political Director. “We are incredibly proud to endorse these ten fierce leaders who will fight for Reproductive Justice at every step of the way.”

Women Winning is proud to endorse ten pro-choice women running for City Council in Duluth and Minneapolis: 

Duluth City Council

Women Winning makes endorsements throughout the year. The organization’s targeted endorsement program centers on pro-choice women candidates with the goal of electing a truly representative government and creating a more equitable Minnesota. 

With the right to an abortion no longer protected at the federal level, there has never been a  more important time to elect pro-choice champions in Minnesota. While abortion is still legal in  Minnesota, it is not in many states across the country – including states in the Midwest. We must take action now to elect relentlessly pro-choice leaders here in Minnesota.
