Facing Race

Changing the Narrative

Nominations are now closed for The Saint Paul & Minnesota Community Foundations' 2018 Facing Race Awards. Two individuals will be selected and recognized at our public award ceremony on October 1. The Awards offer the chance to recognize community members who are courageously transforming our region and state. Each recipient will receive a $15,000 grant to direct to the nonprofit of their choice.

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.

Please save the date for 5-8 p.m. on the evening of Monday, October 1.
