Human Rights Commission

MISSION: 

Acknowledging the universal concept of human rights, the mission of the Human Rights Commission is to ensure that ALL Red Wing residents may participate equally and fully in the human experience. The City will work to extend these rights to economic opportunity, safe and affordable housing, and quality education at all levels to create a safe and supportive community environment. This involves actively working to assure all City policies and practices do not discriminate on any basis, including immigrant or refugee status.

Workshops are held on the third Thursday of each odd month at 7:00 pm in the Mississippi Room of City Hall, 315 West 4th Street (first floor and to the left just inside the 4th Street doors).

State Capitol Art Restoration Project
Jim Bear Jacobs gave an excellent presentation regarding artwork at our Minnesota State Capitol Building and reasons it is offensive to our Native communities.  His assertion is that "we can do better" with the artwork that visitors see during their time at our state's capital.  If you would like to take direct action to influence how our state legislature deals with this issue, please visit the following link and sign the petition Mr. Jacobs created.
