Our Position Papers

The Joint Religious Legislative Coalition  is unique -- four large faith organizations representing Catholics, Protestants, Jews and Muslims across Minnesota committed to advocacy on the many issues where we identify common ground through careful dialogue.

Our work is often guided by formal position papers, approved by the JRLC Board and the Boards of Directors of each of our sponsoring organizations -  the Minnesota Catholic Conference, the Minnesota Council of Churches, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, and the Islamic Center of Minnesota.*

* The Islamic Center of Minnesota became an official Sponsor of JRLC in 2004 and has approved all papers published after 2003.
