NOT IN OUR TOWN is an interracial, interfaith social action group united to advance the cause of racial justice in Princeton. We are committed to speaking truth about “everyday racism” and other forms of discrimination. Where there is conflict we promote reconciliation with open, honest engagement and mutual respect. Our activities and programs promote social and economic justice and educational equity for all. Our goal is that Princeton will grow as a town where everyone is safe and respected.

According to the website, "Sikhism is based on the concepts of universal acceptance of all humanity," the belief in one creator, and reaching out to people of all faiths and cultures and to work toward world peace and in achieving unity in diversity. People of all races, religions and genders are equal in the eyes of God."
The community is reaching out to the Sikhs in Oak Creek, Michigan.
