BINN – Bias Incident Notification Network

THE MAINE BIAS INCIDENT NOTIFICATION NETWORK (BINN)

Mission of the HHRC

We use the lessons of the Nazi Holocaust and other genocides to combat prejudice and discrimination in Maine and beyond. We encourage individuals and communities to reflect and act upon their ethical and moral responsibilities in our modern world. 

Currently, there is no statewide communications network for notifying about bias incidents in Maine. With the rise in the number of bias incidents, there is a clear need for one.

To further encourage individuals and communities to reflect and act upon their ethical and moral responsibilities in our modern world, the HHRC will host a statewide notification network to share information about bias incidents and promote opportunities for compassionate individual and community response.

OBJECTIVES

  • Alert concerned Mainers about verified bias incidents against Maine people and/or property
  • Encourage swift individual and community action in response, and share those responses with the Bias Incident Notification Network

JOINING THE NETWORK

Human rights, law enforcement and justice-related individuals and organizations, as well as businesses and others, are invited to join the BINN. This is a notification network, and there is no fee to join, though donations are gratefully accepted.  We encourage members to share BINN notifications through their mailing lists and other communication channels.

BINN members will receive notification via email of verified bias incidents. Community responses and opportunities to participate in these responses, will be posted on the HHRC’s website and Facebook page:

Join the Network!


Statewide awareness of these bias incidents will encourage public involvement and peaceful collective action to protect human rights, providing opportunities for Mainers to reflect and act.
