Our Mission is to serve as a strong, credible voice to create greater balance in North Dakota politics, to ensure policies reflect our values, to support families and economic fairness, and to hold elected officials accountable.
WHO WE ARE
Prairie Action ND is a rapid response communications organization promoting progressive values, messages and actions. While campaigns come and go, we’re the permanent home for progressive media and action in our state.
WHAT WE DO
Prairie Action ND combines communication and online organizing with offline action to advance progressive solutions for local communities and for our state. Prairie Action ND supports organizational partners in communications & messaging development, political analysis on state and local issues, strategic and digital advocacy campaigns, and media amplification for the progressive movement.
We work to ensure all perspectives are heard in order to create more balance in North Dakota politics.
