Minnesotans are proud and have strong values.   We have deeply held beliefs, strong family and community ties, and we love where we live.   We listen to each other debate, participate in the process and expect a fair outcome. We want everyone to exercise their right to free speech, to weigh in on important issues and most importantly, have a safe working environment. 

That’s why we’re taking a stand for Respect Minnesota.

  • We pledge to listen to one another and look for common ground.
  • We pledge to be inclusive, and accountable for our words and actions.
  • We pledge to respect our beautiful Minnesota environment and each other.
