Who We Are

Higher Education Justice Minnesota is a coalition of students, educators, activists and other individuals brought together by Minneapolis Community & Technical College's reprimanding of Professor Shannon Gibney for teaching about structural racism in her classroom. This group is committed to both that specific struggle and the larger struggle for justice at MCTC, in MnSCU (MN State Colleges & Universities), in higher education in general, and beyond.

Professor Gibney's case has ignited a firestorm of media; for background on the issue, check out these articles. More information on how to get involved will be added soon. For now, be sure to sign this petition.
