~Save the Date~

September 9, 2017

8:30AM - 5PM

(Located at the YWCA of Central Maine in Lewiston)

Organized by The For Us, By Us Fund

Sponsored by Resources for Organizing and Social Change

Co-Sponsored by Southern Maine Worker's Center

Since the 2016 election and the inauguration, people in Maine have been mobilizing around racial justice and racial equity. Black and other People of Color (PoC) Maine activists have been using the momentum from this mobilization to empower Black people and other People of Color in the state. White Maine activists have been affirming their anti-racist commitments by supporting Black and PoC initiatives and joining White, anti-racist organizations. Ideally, the energy from this mobilization will be transformed into grassroots efforts that will create lasting change for Black people and People of Color living in Maine. This year’s Changing Maine gathering will build upon this energy. 

The day will be comprised of two half-day workshops, with a break for lunch and networking. Black attendees and other attendees of color will have the opportunity to participate in workshops on revolutionary love, combating internalized oppression, and organizing/collaborating across racial/ethnic differences. White attendees will have the opportunity to participate in workshops on deconstructing whiteness and creating racially equitable organizing spaces.
