Government Relations

Minnesota Department of Human Rights (MDHR) Government Relations works with communities, governments, and elected officials to create and implement laws and policies that prevent discrimination, end disparities, and build inclusive communities.

Our Government Relations provides public policy development and analysis, and oversees the development of agency proposals that are advanced as part of the governor’s agenda. Our Government Relations helps create rules that guide the agency in performing its duties, oversees production and submission of required reports to the legislature, and creates summaries of laws affecting human rights, civil rights and other related areas. In addition, our Government Relations coordinates and analyzes budgets, legislation, and collaborates with other state agencies on public policy.

To follow our Government Relations activities, action at the Minnesota Legislature, or any other legislative matters, please visit the Minnesota State Legislature's website or follow us on Twitter

Contact Eric Armacanqui, Government Relations Director by email at or at 651.335.8352 for additional questions.
