Operation Unity will be a protest against anti-immigrant activities and a celebration of the diversity that makes Indiana a vibrant state. The celebration is free and open to the public and will feature music, speakers and food.
WHY do we need opposition through action?
On August 20, 2010, Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, will be a “special guest” of Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock who is seeking to raise money fr…om Arpaio supporters. Thanks to one of the state’s top elected officials, Hoosiers will be faced with an out-of-town visitor whose presence will inflame sentiments against many Hoosiers.

Arpaio’s practices, including his infamous sweeps that target anyone who appears to be an immigrant, have been the target of lawsuits. Arpaio is the subject of a federal investigation regarding his abuse of power in going after individuals who have opposed his tactics. Arpaio believes in using physical appearance to stop and inquire about immigration status.

Hoosiers should embrace the benefits of a changing Indiana demographic that moves our state into the 21st century and entry into the global community. We believe – Indiana believes – in moving forward.
