Fishers Race Initiative

In September 2020, Mayor Fadness unveiled a call to action for FIshers residents to begin a series of efforts to dismantle racism in our community. As its first priority, the City of Fishers has committed to sponsoring 500 residents to undergo Interrupting Racism Now training by the end of 2020. 

Interrupting Racism Now

Interrupting Racism Now is a one- or two-day training session by Soul Focused Group, a national equity firm, that addresses the realities of systemic racism in America, both historical and present-day.
