More information

Men and Women from across the state are invited to participate in this exciting and FREE day to rally, lobby and be visible to the South Dakota Legislature.

We want our voices to be heard on important women's issue such as:

* Reproductive Rights
* Violence Against Women
* Equal Opportunity
* Education

The day will begin at 10 am at the Capitol in Pierre. Take the bus for free from Rapid City or Sioux Falls! Each participant will be given a newly designed Women 4 Women t-shirt, a participant pack which includes talking points on the 4 issues and tips on how to speak with your legislator. We will rally on the Capitol steps, hold a visibility event outside and observe the Senate and House chambers in action. We will show the South Dakota Legislature that we care about the laws they are passing, which affect our lives, our bodies and our families! Our voices need to be heard now more than ever! Please join us in Pierre!

The lobby day will also feature a free luncheon featuring guest speaker, Sally Roesch Wagner. Learn more about this exciting lunch event HERE.

Feeling extra political? This year, W4W is a 2-day event. Are you interested in running for office? What about working on a campaign? The task can seem daunting, but it's really not IF you have the right tools. On January 30th, a special training will be held for anyone interested in getting more involved in the political process. Please email if you're interested in attending the training sponsored by the National Women's Political Caucus.
