The Gender Justice Brief
Gender Equity in Minnesota: 2024 Legislative Agenda Briefing

2023 was truly a banner year for gender equity: from passing the Trans Refuge Bill to ending state funding for crisis pregnancy centers and repealing Minnesota’s unconstitutional and harmful abortion restrictions, Gender Justice supporters helped advance some of the most equitable policies in the country.

We know that there is much more work ahead to protect and expand abortion rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and more—on this episode of The Gender Justice Brief, we outline our policy agenda to continue making progress towards gender equity.

Fertility insurance coverage by state (note: during the briefing, we estimated that 12 states have IVF coverage laws, but as of September 2023, the number is actually 15. We aim to add Minnesota to that list!)
