We seek to dismantle the belief in a hierarchy of human value, with a focus on racial equity. Strengthened by a deeper understanding of the many facets of identity, we will work toward a community where all people experience justice and equity.
How We Work for Equity

The Facing Race Awards were established in 2007 to celebrate and honor individuals working to eliminate racism and its effects throughout Minnesota. The Awards are part of the Foundations’ ongoing commitment to racial equity.Learn about the Facing Race Awards
