The 46 member-church board and 25 member staff of the Lafayette Urban Ministry condemn, in the strongest terms, the hate banners found at the
Unitarian Universalist Church of Tippecanoe County in West Lafayette
We deplore the ideology behind them and the hatred manifest in them. White supremacy must find no sanction or shelter in our community.
We grieve that this incident is the latest in a growing number of racist actions in our community, including desks arranged into a swastika at an Honors College learning space at Purdue, White Nationalist posters spread across campus, confederate flags paraded around our community in pickup truck convoys and Klan recruitment posters distributed in downtown Lafayette.
