Watch video: The Kid Experts® at the Minnesota State Capitol 2023

Children’s Minnesota is thrilled to share a special video that showcases The Kid Experts® who advocated for the diverse communities we serve during the 2023 Minnesota legislative session.

In all, Children’s Minnesota experts weighed in on more than 100 bills and testified in more than 20 committee hearings. Many of the key issues our experts testified in favor of have since become state law; including the Trans Refuge Bill, lowering costs for chronic diseases, The CROWN Act, universal school meals and more.

During the 2023 legislative session, 18 experts from Children’s Minnesota testified, attended press conferences and/or bill signings.

For more details about some of the bills our experts advocated for, read this summary from our public policy team.

Children’s Minnesota thanks all of our experts and community partners who helped us show up for kids and families throughout the 2023 legislative session.
