Honoring Minnesota's Anti-Racism Activists for 16 Years

The Facing Race Awards recognize anti-racism activists 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.

Thank You For Your Nominations

Thank you for all of the wonderful nominations for the 2022 Facing Race Awards. The nomination period 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.
