Minnesota Department of Human Rights - St. Cloud Regional Office


The Minnesota Department of Human Rights
The Minnesota Department of Human Rights is the state’s civil rights enforcement agency. The Department enforces the Minnesota Human Rights Act that prohibits discrimination based on race, religion, disability, national origin, sex, marital status, familial status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, color, creed, and local human rights commission activity.

 Role of the Department
Investigators work with individuals who believe they have been discriminated against to determine if the Minnesota Department of Human Rights can help with their situation. If the Department can help, staff may recommend mediation or drafting a charge of discrimination.

 If a charge is drafted, the Departments conducts a neutral investigation. If the Department finds that discrimination occurred under the law, staff will work to settle the case. The Department can also refer the case to the Minnesota Attorney General for litigation.
