The billboard was created and funded by members of the group, which began in January as the Facebook group “Stop Racist Un-Fair Campaign.”
A photographer for Second Chance Photography, a studio in Duluth, took the photo of two hands forming the shape of one heart, each hand representing a different race in our community. The hands are of two 4-year-old girls who live in Duluth.
The purpose of the billboard is to send the message to Duluth residents that the Un-Fair Campaign is a racist campaign that targets and divides people by race instead of bringing unity and togetherness, and that there are many who believe in a more positive and unifying solution to racism. The supporters of the Stop Un-Fair Campaign believe that to end racism, we must celebrate and embrace diversity, and that targeting white people, or any one race, “defaces” it.
