Advocacy across continentsJohn Iversen grew up in Two Harbors in a family that wore its politics on its sleeve. His mother, Alice, now in her 90s, was on the board of Minnesota’s first community health care center, founded in Two Harbors, as well as the board of the Two Harbors Federal Credit Union. Both organizations emerged from the communities determination to work together and take care of one another. Paul’s brother was on the Two Harbors City Council for years, was vice president of the Duluth labor council and has been active in social and political issues, as well. That John Iversen became an activist should come as no surprise.
