A lot happened in Pierre this year.

From defeating two discriminatory anti-transgender bills and expanding resources to addressing the MMIP crisis in South Dakota, the ACLU of South Dakota and our allies shared some important victories during the 2021 legislative session. But there were some disappointments, too, like the passing of the expanded stand your ground laws in our state.

As we look back on the highs and lows of this session, it's also important to get ready for what's next.

Join ACLU of South Dakota Advocacy Manager Jett Jonelis and Indigenous Justice Organizer Candi Brings Plenty for The Fight Ahead, a virtual conversation designed to answer your questions about this session and give you details on what you can do now to make a difference next year. Register today and join us online at 5 p.m. MT / 6 p.m. CT on Thursday, May 6. (The Zoom link will be provided after registration.)

Come prepared with questions and get ready for what's next. Together, we can ensure our lawmakers protect our freedoms and defend our constitutional rights and make South Dakota a more equitable place for everyone.
