Driving Change through Policy and Advocacy

Our advocacy work is centered around building relationships and bringing together the public, private and nonprofit sectors to discuss issues and share solutions, informed by people most impacted by inequitable systems. We also educate government officials and lawmakers on systems-level issues; amplify the experiences of our nonprofit partners and the people they serve through testimony at the Minnesota State Capitol; and elevate research to help advance solutions.
