Working with constituents, public institutions, and elected officials, including members of Minnesota’s Legislature, OutFront Minnesota promotes the human rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Minnesotans. Our work shaping public policy—while always directed toward gaining recognition of the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Minnesotans—takes many different forms.
Voter Registration & Education
One of our most important activities at OutFront Minnesota is fostering an informed, voting community. Through conducting voter registration & voter pledge campaigns, surveying candidates for public office, pre-election phone-banking, holding voter rallies, and publishing voter guides, OutFront Minnesota has encouraged high levels of voter turn out amongst the LGBT and allied communities in recent elections.
OutFront Minnesota's lobbyist works with legislators to address issues of inequality in state law concerning LGBT Minnesotans and to make certain bills under consideration are not harmful to the community. Coordinating efforts with other lobbyists working at the Capitol, OutFront Minnesota ensures that LGBT Minnesotans have a voice in the Legislature’s deliberations.
One important way in which LGBT Minnesotans have a voice at the Legislature is through our annual LGBT Lobby Day, at which constituents from across Minnesota come to the Capitol to meet with their representatives. Through face-to-face, grassroots lobbying, LGBT and other fair-minded Minnesotans are able to participate directly in the legislative process.

Research & Writing
Providing accurate information to legislators and the general public is vital in a climate of myths and deliberate misinformation. OutFront Minnesota provides clear and factual information to legislators regarding LGBT Minnesotans and the importance of the 1993 Human Rights Amendment in protecting the human rights of all Minnesotans.
Teamwork Is The Key!
OutFront Minnesota is a team of dedicated professionals…and you are the most important member of our team! It is your input that gets the legislator’s attention, and, without you, all our efforts will be in vain. Securing human rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Minnesotans requires all of us working together.
