Take a stand against hate
If you witness hate-motivated speech or actions, the City has several options for filing complaints. You can call 911 to report a threat in progress, contact Minneapolis Police after the fact to file a police report online or in person, call 311 to report any non-urgent actions or contact the Civil Rights Department.
The Civil Rights Department enforces the City’s anti-discrimination and anti-harassment laws. If you or someone you know is the victim of harassment or discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, sex, LGBT status or other protected classes, please contact 612-673-3012 or visit www.minneapolismn.gov/civilrights/.
The City recently adopted resolutions standing with the people of Minneapolis and condemning bigotry. The Standing with all Members of Our One Minneapolis resolution commits the City to fighting for the rights, freedoms and interests of all of the members of the Minneapolis community, no matter skin color, gender, the way of worship, birthplace, sexual orientation, or any other identity. The Solidarity with the Muslim Community resolution recognizes that the United States was founded by immigrants, many fleeing religious persecution, who enshrined freedom of religion as one of the nation’s fundamental legal and ethical principles.
