Civil Rights U-Visa Program

Please direct all certification requests to the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights. For regular certification requests, please include a cover letter explaining how the victim was helpful.

For expedited requests, please note in bold in the subject line of your cover letter: "Applicant (or derivative applicant) in removal proceedings. Please expedite." Please also include information about the removal proceedings, such as a copy of the notice to appear.

Please note, if this certification would be best signed by another department in the City of Minneapolis, you will be contacted directly regarding your request.
