Students Speak: Confronting Bias in Maine Schools

August 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This week and next, teachers from across Maine are working with HHRC educators in a summer seminar on confronting bias in Maine schools.  But we all have a role to play, which is why we’re pleased to offer this evening event free and open to the public.

Please join us for this exciting panel: Students Speak: Confronting Bias in Maine Schools on Thursday, August 13 at 7 pm.  If you register here, we’ll send you a zoom link for the event!

Sophia Williams, Alexa Allen, Jamaica Ford and Isaiah Reid have a lot to say about their experiences as Black students in Maine schools and their hopes and efforts for change.

How can you support young people of color?  Let’s hear from them what we can do to ensure our schools and state are more safe and welcoming for all.  Let’s pledge to ensure black lives matter in our classrooms and our communities.
