Pressroom Podcast: A Duluth for all people

Duluth Human Rights Officer Carl Crawford1 / 2
2 / 2

Employment equality, affordable housing, and making sure city services are accessible to all people are just a few of the things that keep Duluth Human Rights Officer Carl Crawford busy every day.  

On this week’s episode, Crawford shares what his job is like, what things he’s doing to improve the city, how he measures his success, and how he thinks we are doing as a community.

“The challenge we have is the idea that we live in a post-racial society. That in fact is not true,” Crawford says on this week’s episode. “The same is true if you believe everyone has the same opportunities regardless of your beginnings in life. And we know that’s not true. But the opportunity is for us to learn from that and not stay there.”

What we are into this week: “Manhunt” on Netflix, MLB baseball playoffs, Jennifer Egan’s new book “Manhattan Beach,” and the book “From Jailer to Jailed,” by Bernard Kerik.

Tune in every week to hear Duluth News Tribune reporters Brady Slater, Christa Lawler and Tom Olsen talk about current Duluth and Northland happenings. You can email us at, call our podcast line at 218-382-NEWS or follow us on Facebook. The podcast is produced by Samantha Erkkila.
