2017-2018 Annual Report

Highlights of the past year include:

  • JRLC released a Poverty Progress Report based on recommendations of the 2009 Legislative Commission to End Poverty in Minnesota by 2020. The Report notes important progress Minnesota has made and identities remaining barriers to economic stability.

at our Day on the Hill, which included new pre-sessions attended by more than a third of our attendees.
