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.

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
