In February 2018, a group of Noblesville residents, leaders in the faith and business communities, and organizations came together to form the Noblesville Diversity Coalition (NDC) to build a more welcoming and inclusive Noblesville. Racial tension and threats of violence nationally and locally exposed a problem that called for action. Noblesville Community School’s Superintendent, Dr. Beth Niedermeyer, invited representatives from the community, the Mayor’s office, local businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, faith-based organizations, parents, educators, and students to a community meeting. It became evident, Noblesville needed a collaborative community-wide approach to identify and address underlying issues contributing to bias, discrimination, and intolerance that lead to widening divides–racial, political, religious, economic, and more. NDC became a voice for change across all community sectors.
