2024 Lobby Days

Updated January 30, 2024

By Sam Gault, Communications and Engagement Manager

Thank you to our special guests—Senator Bonnie S. Westlin and Representative Heather Edelson—as well as to our amazing advocacy leads and advocates for making NCJW’s 2024 advocacy kick-off event such a success! For those of you who couldn’t make it, there are plenty of opportunities coming up to join NCJW and our coalition partners at the Capitol once the Minnesota legislative session kicks off on Monday, February 12th. Here, in chronological order, are the lobby days that NCJW is partnering on (that we know about so far). Be sure to check back for updates!


It’s hard to believe that, in the 21st century, women’s equality under the law has yet to be codified. NCJW joins ERA Minnesota in calling for an Equal Rights Amendment to be added to the state Constitution through a comprehensive state ERA bill (SF37/HF173), which would be followed by a ballot measure in November.

The #Day1forERA rally will take place on Monday, February 12th. We will gather at 10:00 a.m. in the Capitol Rotunda for the rally, followed by legislator visits.

RESOLVE’s Minnesota Advocacy Day

NCJW is also proud to stand with the Minnesota Building Families Coalition and the RESOLVE Advocacy Network in support of the Minnesota Building Families Act, which would mandate that insurers in our state provide coverage for the diagnosis and treatment of infertility.

RESOLVE’s Minnesota Advocacy Day is on Wednesday, February 14th, with doors opening at 8:00 a.m. and orientation beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day

Following on the passage of the PRO Act and other bills last year to codify Minnesotans’ legal right to reproductive freedom, the UnRestrict coalition will be keeping up the pressure this session to ensure meaningful access to reproductive health, rights, and justice.

Join us at the Capitol on Thursday, March 7th for Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day!

Gun Safety Advocacy Days

Protect Minnesota’s Lobby Day is coming up on Tuesday, March 5th. We’ll start with a legislator meeting and advocacy training at 1:00 p.m. in Capitol room G23, followed by a rally on the Capitol steps at 3:00 p.m.

Moms Demand Action will be pushing for bills mandating safe gun storage and gun theft reporting! Save the date for their lobby day on Tuesday, April 16th. Register here.

Stay tuned for more details coming soon about these and other gun violence prevention advocacy events.
