Support issue research, stipends for internships, printing and distribution of issue papers to legislators and our members.

JRERF is the research and public education arm of the Joint Religious Legislative Coalition (JRLC). Since 1982 we've been connecting policy and theological research with timely social justice issues in Minnesota. Funds are often used to provide stipends or fellowships to degree-earning students or to publish educational materials for use in congregations or interfaith forums. Our interfaith work makes a large contribution to the civic climate of Minnesota! JRERF is governed by a 16 member Board of Directors, four appointed from each of the following: Minnesota Council of Churches, Minnesota Catholic Conference, Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, Islamic Center of Minnesota.
