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.

Save the Date

The 15th annual Facing Race Awards premiere October 24 at 7 p.m. on your local TPT MN channel.

Thank You For Your Nominations

Thank you for all of the wonderful nominations for the 2021 Facing Race Awards. The nomination period was April 5 to May 3 and has now closed.

Award recipients are nominated by the community, and 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. Award recipients will be announced this fall.

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.
