Downtown Indianapolis Hit with Antisemitic Flyers from the ‘Goyim Defense League’ (GDL)

Messages of hate have been popping up around multiple neighborhoods in downtown Indianapolis. The messages are being found on the front doors, bushes and in yards.

“All of these other historic neighborhoods were hit. Chathan Arch, Holy Cross,” Ellen Seiferth, with the Lockerbie Square Historic Neighborhood Association, said.

Seiferth says bags of rice containing sntisemitic and anti-abortion messages were dropped in neighborhoods near downtown.

The advocacy organization fighting antisemitism – StopAntisemitism – has attributed the antisemitic flyers to the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The league travels the country distributing these hateful flyers targeted Jewish communities.

“I think we were disgusted and horrified. A lot of the times we forget that this is even going on,” Seiferth said.

Seiferth says she reported the issue to IMPD, but she wants people to know that this isn’t a downtown Indianapolis issue, it’s a nationwide issue.

For Seiferth, she wants people to understand that we all come from different walks of life.

“I think we all need to educate each other, be tolerant and care about one another’s differences,” Seiferth said.
