Steve O’Neil passed away on Tuesday, July 16th, 2013. He was a man who devoted his life to community service. He worked tirelessly on behalf of people who had become hungry and people who were homeless throughout the City of Duluth.
“Based on the writings of Martin Luther King Jr.: While on this earth do all you can to move the usually invisible arc of justice and love forward to benefit all Creation. In doing so you will have accomplished much…The arc continues to move forward toward a more just and loving world, even in our lives amazing change has happened and is happening.”
- Steve O’Neil

Anti-racism effort in Duluth vows to fight on
City Leaders View: Response, not racism, defines Duluth
“An event has happened, upon which it is difficult to speak and impossible to remain silent.” Those words are carved atop of the Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial, dedicated to the three black men senselessly lynched by an angry white mob in downtown Duluth in 1920. This dark and disgusting chapter of Duluth’s history will forever serve as our reminder of our collective civic duty as a community to stand up to racism and all other forms of discrimination and hatred.
Racism is an issue that we don’t like talking about. The Un-Fair Campaign was developed to look at racism and to encourage a community dialogue about the causes and solutions.
Racism is a complex social issue and depending upon what you see as the causes of racism you have ideas about the solutions.
We invite you to spend time on this website and to ask yourself how you may be part of the problem as well as part of the solution.
See it. Know it. Stop it.
