Stephanie Hogenson, Research and Policy Director

Established in 1985, Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota (CDF-MN) is the only policy organization in Minnesota to focus solely on the needs of children. CDF–MN targets all Minnesota children, particularly children being raised in low-income households who suffer greater barriers to full participation in society as a result of being born into poverty. CDF–MN pays particular attention to the needs of our most vulnerable children — children of color, children from low-income families and children with disabilities. To achieve its goals, CDF-MN does advocacy, research, outreach and youth development.
