About this group

Activities, Challenges & Lesssons Learned


After the hateful fliers were distributed in 1998, we held a rally on the courthouse square that drew hundreds of supporters. After the man who distributed the flyers went on a murderous rampage in 1999, we held a community vigil to heal and unite the community in memory of the young Korean student, Won Joon Yun, who was murdered on the Indiana University campus that drew thousands of supporters, including the then Attorney General of the United States, Janet Reno.  We've repeatedly printed and distributed signs for individuals and businesses to display that say "Bloomington United in Diversity" on one side and "Bloomington United NO Hate NOT in our yards NOT in our town NOT anywhere" on the other side.  We've marched in the community's annual Fourth of July parades, distributing activity books for children that promote diversity.
