ATTENTION HMONG HUNTERS

CALL FOR FILING COMPLAINTS and COLLECTING TESTIMONIES

Have you faced discrimination or racism by the DNR- especially as a Hmong hunter or from DNR officers such as Officer Joel Heyn?

The Minnesota Department of Human Rights wants YOUR complaint or testimony NOW.
Complaints that are less than 1 year can be filed together as a class suit while they investigate the DNR in regards to K.V., a Hmong hunter who has recently filed a formal complaint.

Testimonies from over 1 year ago can be used as evidence of institutional racism and interpersonal racism.

Please email testimonies of the incident with your full name, email address, phone number.
The testimony should include: 1) time, date and location of the incident, 2) the names of the hunters involved or affected, 3) the DNR officer name (if possible), 4) mention of any citations, 5)specific dialogue or actions seen as discriminatory or racist.
