Marquette Organization for Racial Equality
Marquette Organization for Racial Equality (MORE) formed in 1963 in correlation with Marquette University's Students United for Racial Equality (SURE). MORE organized inter-racial discussion groups, worked with individual families, and tutored inner-city youths to achieve their goal of racial equality. Although Milwaukee remains one of the most segregated cities in America, the efforts of MORE during the 1960s worked to decrease tensions in the Near West Side neighborhood. MORE's efforts to improve the race relations in the Near West Side helped to strengthen the community due to positive and productive inter-racial interactions.
