TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. -- A West Lafayette church was targeted by vandals the day after they held a "Resistance Fair" to promote and mobilize voters ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. 

The Unitarian Universalist Church shared photos of the vandalism, which appeared on two banners in front of the church and included racial slurs and threatened violence "like Orlando and Las Vegas."

The vandalism comes the day after the church held a "Resistance Fair" on the one-year anniversary of President Trump's inauguration to help mobilize left voters. 

The two references were to mass shootings at a gay nightclub in Orlando and the country music festival in Las Vegas. 

One of the banners referenced singer-songwriter Jackson Browne and used a number of slurs that targeted race, minorities and sexual orientation. 

Anyone with information on who the vandals are should contact the West Lafayette Police Department at 765-775-5200.
