Minneapolis earns perfect score from Human Rights Campaign for inclusion of LGBT community

The City of Minneapolis has earned a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign for how the city’s laws, policies and services are inclusive of the LGBT community.

The Human Rights Campaign released its Municipal Equality Index today that looks at the laws, policies and services of 291 municipalities and rates them on the basis of their inclusivity of LGBT people who live and work there.

“We’re inclusive in Minneapolis not only throughout the City enterprise, but in everyday city life as well. We do this because it’s the right thing to do but it’s also the smart thing to do. Being a vibrant community that is inclusive of all people helps attract top talent to Minneapolis that helps grow the economy and makes Minneapolis a great place to live, work and visit,” said Mayor R.T. Rybak.

The Municipal Equality Index includes six categories: non-discrimination laws, relationship recognition, municipality as employer, municipal services, law enforcement, and relationship with the LGBT community.
