The Minnesota Department of Human Rights envisions a world where everyone can lead full lives, rich with dignity and joy. They protect the civil rights of Minnesotans through the Minnesota Human Rights Act to ensure everyone can live free from discrimination. As Minnesota’s communities grow older and the population becomes more racially diverse, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights is committed to creating an equitable and inclusive Minnesota, eliminating discrimination, and ending disparities and inequities. The Department works to break down policies and practices that perpetuate structural barriers, such as, racism, ableism, homophobia, and ageism to build strong communities.
