BISMARCK — A series of virtual programs aimed at building communities of empowered and informed advocates in North Dakota to work for justice and equity kicks off this month.

“Solidarity Saturdays” returns Saturday, Aug. 13 with the launch of its fall series “Power Back to the People,” according to a news release from the North Dakota Voices Network.

Its first program, North Dakota in a Post-Roe World, will be a facilitated conversation on the history of reproductive rights in the state, the state’s abortion trigger law and how people can advocate for abortion access.

The program will feature Amy Jacobson, executive director of Prairie Action North Dakota and Katie Christensen, North Dakota state director of Planned Parenthood North Central States, in conversation with Zach Packineau of the ND Voices Network.

The five-part fall series will focus on topics including democracy, reproductive healthcare, voting rights, elections and the state legislative process.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
