Equal Access Policies
The Minnesota Board on Aging (MBA) works to ensure that older Minnesotans and their families are effectively served by state and local policies and programs, so they can age well and live well.
Neither the Minnesota Board on Aging nor its associated programs, the Senior LinkAge Line and Office of Ombudsman for Long Term Care, discriminates against any person on the basis of social identity, including race, ethnicity, class, nationality, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or age in the provision or receipt of services through any of its programs or activities, whether carried out by the MBA/ SLL/ OOLTC directly, or through one of the Area Agencies on Aging through which we implement our programs and activities. If you believe that one of our staff members acted in a discriminatory manner, please contact the MBA Executive Director, Kari Benson, at (651) 431-2500.
The Minnesota Board on Aging collectively acknowledge that we are located on the traditional land of Indigenous people that once and still is occupied by the Ojibwe, Dakota and other Native peoples from the time immemorial. These lands hold great historical, spiritual, cultural and personal significance for these Native nations. We recognize, support and advocate for the sovereignty of these nations in this territory and beyond. By offering this land acknowledgement, we affirm tribal sovereignty and will hold ourselves accountable to the American Indian people and nations.
This statement was written by Jacob Day, tribal policy specialist in the Office of Indian Policy, and adapted for the MBA.
The Minnesota Board on Aging strives to ensure that all information provided through its website is available in accessible formats for people with disabilities. The MBA is administratively housed within the Department of Human Services and abides by the state of Minnesota technology accessibility policies standards.
