Gender Justice Action and UnRestrict Minnesota Action Launch; Minnesota’s first pro-reproductive freedom majority is elected
In 2022, Gender Justice launched Gender Justice Action (GJA), a 501(c)4 political non-profit organization focused on responding to our country’s abortion crisis with the goals of electing pro-reproductive freedom champions, spearheading real legislative action, and paving the way for Minnesota to lead on abortion access. We also launched UnRestrict Minnesota Action (URMA), a program of Gender Justice Action. GJA and URMA allowed us to target nine state races in the 2022 midterm elections, including the Attorney General’s race, with the goal of electing pro-reproductive freedom lawmakers and officials. And our work paid off, with Minnesota voters electing the state’s first-ever pro-reproductive freedom majority to the Legislature!
