Twin Cities Chapter

The Minnesota Twin Cities Chapter of the Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism (FAIR) launched in June of 2021. FAIR is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to advancing civil rights and liberties for all Americans, and promoting a common culture based on fairness, understanding and humanity.

As Minnesotans, we are facing many challenges in our schools and our communities that threaten the civil liberties and common humanity that we all share.  Divisive ideologies, such as Critical Race Theory, are tearing our culture apart. K-12 students are being taught to define themselves based on the color of their skin, not the content of their character. If this continues, it will have a profoundly negative impact on the future of our American experience. The Minnesota Twin Cities Chapter of FAIR is committed to ending intolerance and neo-racism by promoting a culture of true tolerance and civil rights. 

We equip parents, educators, students, politicians, and administrators with the tools and knowledge necessary to challenge Critical Race Theory and other forms of neo-racism. We also have community online forums; we do outreach, advocacy, and educational campaigns; and we hold in-person Meetups . We are building a community of like-minded citizens who support each other in standing up for traditional values like tolerance, diversity, equality of opportunity and respect for different perspectives. There truly is strength in numbers!

Please consider signing up to become a member of The Minnesota Twin Cities Chapter of FAIR and help us move our culture toward realizing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream: an America in which all of us citizens live as one unified and tolerant people.

Jeff lives in Plymouth, Minnesota with his wife and their three wonderful children. He has practiced law (mostly business-related law) for over 20 years. He coaches high school cross country and mock trial, and loves working with and bringing out the best in young people. He is also passionate about ensuring that we leave our nation a better place than we found it. He joined FAIR because it is non-partisan and pro-human. He believes that we simply must return to a place where each American is judged by the content of their character, and not by their race or any other immutable characteristic.

Dan GarsciaEast Subchapter Management Leader

Dan lives in Maplewood, Minnesota with his wife and two spirited children. Dan works for a Digital Agency in Minneapolis and has been in the industry for over 15 years. Dan has been active in his community for over a decade, starting when he first noticed that the freedoms he values so highly were beginning to erode. Dan joined FAIR because, as a partner in an interracial marriage, and father of bi-racial children, Critical Race Theory threatens the values and principles he and his wife have worked so hard to instill in their children. Dan has witnessed firsthand the damage that CRT can cause young minds, and is willing to do whatever he can to help bring the focus back to the “content of character” approach that treats all humans with equal dignity.
