What we do

Racial Equity, Inclusion and Belonging drives culture change throughout the City.


In Minneapolis, we're committed to reducing socio-economic disparities.

We believe that:

  • What we look like and where we're from should not determine our place in society.
  • All people are equal in rights, dignity and potential.
  • Inequality based on race, gender and other factors is not just unfortunate, it is unjust.

To paraphrase The American Prospect (2007), we value:

  • Equality
  • Democracy
  • Security
  • Social mobility
  • Shared responsibility
  • The chance for redemption

These are the moral principles of the American opportunity ideal.

Despite our reputation as a progressive city, we still grapple with the legacy of past discrimination.
