Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is committed to the vision that all people have the opportunity to live and work in community with full and abundant lives. This vision guides our efforts in support of every Minnesota neighbor.

The LSS Advocacy Office engages employees, supporters, and the people we support in advocacy by promoting civic engagement, building relationships with policymakers, and advocating on the state and federal levels in support of LSS’ mission and public policy priorities. LSS’ policy agenda is designed to address root causes, build more equitable systems, and strengthen resources in community.

Add your voice in support of every Minnesota neighbor by joining our ongoing efforts to build public will across Minnesota and with elected officials.
