A Minnesota That Works for Everyone
WE ARE COMMITTED TO DISMANTLING A BELIEF IN A HIERARCHY OF HUMAN VALUE, WITH A FOCUS ON RACIAL EQUITY.
As we work to create a just and vibrant Minnesota where all communities and people thrive, we know we can never realize our vision unless we advocate for equity.
Storytelling is how we make sense of the world around us. We can’t get to a just and equitable world until our collective narrative fairly and wholly represents each and every one of our communities.
Art In This Present Moment
During challenging times, artists are at the forefront of expressing a community's response and demanding change. We launched Art in This Present Moment, an initiative of the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, with funding from the McKnight Foundation, to support their work.
We are providing financial support to artists who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color who are changing and challenging dominant narratives through their craft.
