Policy and Organizing C4

OutFront works to build and support a statewide network of Minnesotans who are working toward LGBTQ liberation. Working with constituents, public institutions, and elected officials, including members of Minnesota’s Legislature, OutFront Minnesota works to advance equity and justice for LGBTQ Minnesotans. Our work shaping public policy—while always directed toward gaining recognition of the human rights of LGBTQ Minnesotans—takes many different forms. One of our most important activities at OutFront Minnesota is fostering and supporting informed constituencies across the state. We work to ensure that Minnesotans can effectively work to shape local and state policy and work to change hearts and minds so that Minnesota is an inclusive and welcoming state.

OutFront Minnesota represents the c4 arm of our policy work. For more information about OutFront's c4 work, visit the page of OutFront Minnesota Community Services.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 06/11/2024

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
