Honoring Minnesota's Anti-Racism Activists for 15 Years

The Facing Race Awards recognize anti-racism activists and organizations in Minnesota 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.

Nominations Closed

The 2021 nomination period was April 5 to May 3, and has now closed. Thank you for your nominations.

Award recipients are nominated by the community, and up to four will be recognized. Each award recipient will receive a grant to benefit a Minnesota nonprofit of their choice and be recognized at a televised Facing Race Awards ceremony later this year.

Advocating for Equity

The Facing Race Awards, established in 2007, are just one way the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation advocates for equity. Learn more about our narrative change and anti-racism efforts, and how you can join us.
