If you have experienced, witnessed, or learned of a potential bias incident within the services, facilities, and institutions of the City of New Brighton in the last 365 days, you may file a report with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights

Helpful information to document include details of the incident, dates and times, names of witnesses and/or involved persons, and related media (social media posts, voicemails, letters, etc.).
