Legal Aid’s Racial Justice Values Statement:

Diversity, inclusion and equity are core values for Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid, and it is critical that we incorporate these values into all aspects of our work. We recognize the particular and highly detrimental impact of racism – and Minnesota’s racial disparities – on MMLA’s clients and staff. We will therefore devote special attention to issues of racial justice.

We commit to:

  • Ensuring our work is rooted in the communities which we serve
  • Strengthening MMLA’s organizational capacity through increased racial diversity, inclusion and equity
  • Developing and applying a racial equity lens to our work with clients
  • Advancing the cause of racial justice in our client representation and policy advocacy work.
