2018 HRSymposium Save the Date

Crossroads: Reconciling Our Vision for America –  As Minnesota embarks on the next chapter of human rights in Minnesota,  America and Minnesota are at a crossroads. Minnesota and the country are in the midst of extraordinary demographic changes. Across the United States, the importance of equity, human and civil rights in education, housing, health care, employment, the court system and many other areas is being challenged. Nearly 50 years after the Minnesota Human Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act were passed, America is a crossroad and must reconcile its vision for America.
