Racist fliers spur woman to launch diversity initiative in Norwalk
A Norwalk woman has launched a community-driven initiative to highlight and celebrate the city's diversity.
This comes after some people discovered racist fliers in their driveways on Feb. 6.
Sharon Baanante says when she heard about white supremacist fliers distributed in her hometown, she couldn't stay silent. Baanante says she felt compelled to do something to show the city's strength is its diversity.
"We have a town or city that's really full of love and diversity, and I couldn't believe that somebody would have the audacity to do it here," Baanante says.
She's now officially launched the "Love ALL Project" to showcase Norwalk's commitment to welcoming everyone.
The group had its first meeting Sunday night and will roll out a marketing campaign.
Baanante says members will be looking for feedback on where to take the initiative.
