Honoring Minnesota's
Anti-Racism Activists

The Facing Race Awards offer an annual recognition of anti-racism activists and organizations in Minnesota. They are a way to honor those in our community who challenge absent and harmful narratives on race, build solutions that unite, instead of divide, and push for justice and equity. Through these Awards, we celebrate and learn from those leading the way forward.

The Facing Race Awards, established in 2007, are just one way the Foundation advocates for equity.
