TENDER LOVE - Josh Vietti


CM - Division of Race and Equity 3.png

In Minneapolis, all of our work to eliminate socio-economic disparities centers around our belief that what we look like and where we come from should not determine the benefits, burdens, or responsibilities we bear in our society. Because we believe all people are created equal in​ terms of rights, dignity, and the potential to achieve great things, we see inequality based on race, gender, and other social characteristics as not only unfortunate but unjust. The value of equality, democratic voice, physical and economic security, social mobility, a shared sense of responsibility for one another, and a chance to start over after misfortune or missteps -- what many Americans call redemption -- are the moral pillars of the American ideal of opportunity (The American Prospect, 2007). Despite Minneapolis' reputation as one of the most progressive, thriving cities in the country, we cannot escape the present legacy of past discrimination.

Partnering to Create a Healthier Community

While DHS employees perform different jobs and duties, such as research-analyses, direct caregiving, program administration, fraud prevention, licensing oversight, plant management and human resources, we share a belief that when Minnesotans help other Minnesotans, we create a brighter future for all of us.
