The Militia, as a partner of WE Health Clinic (formerly the Women's Health Center of Duluth) and as a member of the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF), is dedicated to improving access to abortion and reproductive health services across the Northland. The Militia provides financial assistance to individuals seeking abortions in the Twin Ports - breaking down barriers for those most in need – low-income women, women of color, queer women, young women, queer young people, transgender individuals. On a local, state, and national level, the Militia demonstrates to other communities (using a grassroots, working model) that it is possible to build their own local funds.
Past fundraising events have included:
- Eight HOTDISH Militia Bake-offs
- One cupcake Bake-off
- Film screening by Shelby Knox
- Two bowl-a-thons
- One nation-wide bike-a-thon
