Anti-Discrimination Law


Minnesota Statute Section 604.12 makes it a crime to deny the full and equal enjoyment of any public place of accommodation to a person solely because the person operates a motorcycle or is wearing clothing that displays the name of an organization or association.
Please see the Minnesota State Statute pertaining to the “RESTRICTIONS ON DENYING ACCESS TO PLACES OF PUBLIC ACCOMMODATION”, as outlined in Minnesota State Statute 604.12. In addition, any person whose exercise or enjoyment of rights secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States has been interfered with, or attempted to be interfered with may institute and prosecute a civil action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief, including the award of compensatory monetary damages. tected, and persons or establishments who discriminate on the basis of clothing or club membership are subject to lawsuit.

Don’t subject yourself to civil and criminal penalties and to expensive and time consuming lawsuits. Don’t discriminate against people wearing colors or motorcycle attire.

Minnesota is the only state in the union with such a law and AIM attorney Steve O’Brien was instrumental in its passage.
