Wine, Chocolate & Choice

womenwinning is fired up to elect pro-choice women from all political parties to all levels of public office and 2018 is going to be our BIGGEST. YEAR. YET. With six statewide races on the ballot in Minnesota, not to mention key congressional, state, and local elections, there is a lot at stake.

This event is for people of all ages, gender identities, political parties, and backgrounds and we want to see all of you there!
