The Department of Civil Rights Congratulates Director Velma Korbel on her Reappointment

The Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights would like to extend a heartfelt set of congratulations to Director Velma Korbel for her confirmation as Director of the department for 2014 to 2016.

The journey of a strong leader is always a challenge, but her vision and unceasing commitment to human rights and racial equity in the City has been undeniable. As Council members mentioned, the Director of Civil Rights is one of the toughest positions to hold in the City of Minneapolis. However, the Mayor, Council Members and many community leaders truly believe that no other person has been more qualified and effective in this position than Director Velma Korbel.

We look forward to continuing our work with Director Korbel to promoting the understanding of civil rights to all.
