What should I do if I have experienced or witnessed COVID-discrimination?

Amid rising reports of discrimination from the Asian American community, Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan launched a Discrimination Helpline to reinforce the state’s efforts to protect the civil rights of Minnesotans during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Minnesota residents who experience or witness bias and discrimination can call the Discrimination Helpline at 1-833-454-0148 or complete and submit this online form. Translation/interpretation services are available. The helpline is staffed Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If you have been the victim of a crime, including a hate crime, or fear for your safety, call 911 immediately.
