Our Mission: To build, organize and mobilize a statewide movement to end poverty in Minnesota by 2020.

Our Values: Based on “A Common Foundation: Shared Principles for Work on Overcoming Poverty.”

Our Vision: Work to provide all people with those things that protect human dignity and make for a healthy life: adequate food and shelter, meaningful work, safe communities, healthcare, and quality education.

We believe there is enough for all to have enough, if we all do our part!


Our Goals: Ending poverty is possible, but it takes all of us to work towards a more promising tomorrow – where all Minnesotans thrive. At A Minnesota Without Poverty, we work to build the public will to end poverty, effect public policy, engage public leadership, promote public accountability and broaden the public access for the development and economic well being of all Minnesota communities.
