Campaign Against 11 Kicks Off!

The South Dakota Campaign for Healthy Families is moving into high gear to defeat Initiated Measure 11 and Planned Parenthood is helping in the Fight.

There are lots of opportunities over the next several weeks to get involved. Please give a couple of hours over the next two weeks so the Campaign gets off to a great start.

Sioux Falls Campaign Kick-off Canvass
Join us on Saturday, July 19th, from 10-2 for our Campaign Kick-off Canvass. We will be reaching out to voters, letting them know that they will be voting on another abortion ban this year, and asking them to vote No.

Can’t make the kick-off canvass? Planned Parenthood is taking several shifts throughout the two week project.

Sign up for one of the following canvass dates:

Sunday, July 20 – 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Tuesday, July 29 – 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Can't make it one of those days? There are plenty of other shifts that we'd be more than happy to have you help with.

All canvasses will begin at the Campaign Headquarters located at 1003 S. Grange (next to Black Sheep Coffee).

To sign-up please contact Shannon at 1-800-441-0417 or

Rapid City Canvass: stay tuned for details!
