Complaint Investigations Division

Everyone who lives in, works, or visits Minneapolis is protected from acts of discrimination.

Discrimination is illegal in Minneapolis

The Complaint Investigations Division investigates all complaints of discrimination which fall under the jurisdiction of the Minneapolis Civil Rights Ordinance (MCRO).

City of Minneapolis works to prevent and prohibit all acts of discrimination. We believe that discrimination impacts the health, welfare, peace and safety of everyone. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights to eliminate discrimination in the city.

In Minneapolis, it’s illegal to be discriminated against based on your:

  • Age

  • Emancipated minor status
  • Familial status
  • Gender identity
  • Marital status

  • Religion
  • Retaliation
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Status with regard to public assistance
