It is the policy of the MAIC to comply with the Minnesota Human Rights Act as State Law, specifically statute 363A.11 subdivisions 1 and 2, in regards to full and equal enjoyment of public accommodations. Any person/s, parties, business or organization contracting the use of facilities of the MAIC must comply with this nondiscrimination policy.

HEALTHY BEVERAGE POLICY

All beverages offerings, either served or sold, must comply with the Minneapolis American Indian Center’s Healthy Beverage Policy. The Minneapolis American Indian Center will promote access to free, safe drinking water at all times and provide only healthy beverages, as specified by beverage standards below, during all meetings (internal and external), events, and programming. Employees and visitors will continue to have personal choice of beverage(s) they purchase outside of the organization and bring to work; however, because we serve community members, we encourage all staff to model healthy choices by choosing not to consume sugary drinks or conceal consumption around community members. This Healthy Beverage Policy applies to requests-for-bids, vendor contracts, and to anyone renting/using space within
the Minneapolis American Indian Center. This Healthy Beverage Policy is explained within all rental/lease agreement. Organizations renting the space will be required to adhere to the policy guidelines when using any rentable space (gymnasium, auditorium, gallery, etc.) within the Minneapolis American Indian Center.

All beverages served (e.g., at meetings) and sold (e.g., café, vendors) at the Minneapolis American Indian Center, will strive to increase the availability of healthy beverage options by providing the following:

  • Water (free, safe drinking water through fountains and similar outlets; unsweetened, 100% fruit-infused, plain or naturally flavored sparkling/seltzer).
  • Tea/coffee (unsweetened with only naturally occurring caffeine).
  • Milk (plain low-fat [1%] or fat-free [skim], or other unsweetened non-dairy milk alternatives).
