[ARCHIVED] City of Hopkins Joins Just Deeds Coalition

On March 16, 2021, the City of Hopkins City Council adopted the resolution condemning the use of discriminatory covenants and approved the participation in the Just Deeds coalition. Coalition members provide free legal and title services to help property owners find discriminatory covenants and discharge them from their property titles.

Although covenants are no longer enforceable, the covenants resulted in a century of segregated communities. Stifling access to wealth, education, policing, safety, neighborhood parks and public transportation – services other communities take for granted, these impacts continue today. Renouncing the covenants allows us to acknowledge this racist history and pursue reconciliation and anti-racist solutions to mitigate the impact on our community going forward.
