Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBT equality in Minnesota alongside state and local groups and lawmakers.
The fight to win marriage equality in Minnesota has been years in the making. Leading into this year’s successful campaign to pass marriage equality legislation, the Human Rights Campaign worked to elect Governor Mark Dayton and other pro-equality candidates and to defeat the 2012 anti-marriage constitutional amendment that would have barred marriage equality in the North Star State.
HRC contributed more than $1.1 million to the historic 2012 campaign that paved the way for this year’s victory.
Marriage equality legislation has officially passed in Minnesota and awaits Governor Dayton's signature later this week. Find out more about HRC’s efforts to help secure marriage equality in Minnesota.
