Here is the Not In Columbus Mission Statement:
Not in Columbus' is a coalition of organizations in Columbus, Indiana who have formed an alliance to publicly reject the ideology of any group that seeks to divide and exclude any members of our community. We believe Columbus is an inclusive community that values diversity in all its forms, therefore we renounce all forms of hate in our city. White Supremacists, White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis (and any other group founded on discriminatory ideologies) are NOT welcome to use this town as grounds to recruit, indoctrinate, or mobilize our residents. 'Not in Columbus' will not be silent in response to hate. We will stand against those wishing to spread hate by word or deed.
And this was the focus of the event. There was five speakers discussing the following topics, followed by an open dialogue by those in attendance.
City’s response and commitment to the work of resisting white supremacy/hate groups, and encouragement for this community response.
Testimony of being targeted by White Supremacy/hate group, framing the real threat that is right here in and surrounding Columbus.
Broader scope of how white supremacy affects our communities.
The need for us as individuals, religious communities, organizations to come together to do the work of racial justice and resist white supremacy. That this work can be done within and beyond our religious communities, etc.
An example of how we are nurturing inclusion and authentic relationships. The Columbus Interfaith Campus. Then, pivot to how there are so many ways we can make this vision of inclusion and love real in Columbus.
