Anti-Racism Resource Team & Wabanaki REACH Present
Interacting with Wabanaki-Maine History Workshop
Interacting with Wabanaki-Maine History – Monday, November 1st at 6PM
This program is a two hour interactive experience in which we engage in a story of particular events in the history of 400-years of colonization of Wabanaki people by Europeans in this territory now called the state of Maine.
This highly engaging experience requires our full participation in order to genuinely increase our understanding of colonization and what it means for current descendants and future generations; to reflect on what story we are writing for our grandchildren. We ask participants to participate with their cameras on throughout the presentation in order to experience the program to its fullest.
Upon recommendation from Wabanaki REACH, given the subject matter we will be discussing and the length of time we will be gathered together on zoom, we will need at least 20 participants to run the workshop and will need to cap attendance at 50. Should we get 50 registrations quickly and, when you sign up, you find that this program is full, that will be a sign to us that we should organize a second workshop with this information. We will have a sign up sheet available for those who wish to register for a future workshop. Please contact Rev. Chrissy Cataldo if we’ve hit capacity for this workshop and you would like to attend the next one.

The Anti-Racism Resource Team is a group of clergy and lay members of the Maine Conference UCC committed to dismantling racism in all its forms. We welcome others to join us in the pursuit of justice.
Our Main Focus is to:
- Identify and provide Anti-Racism training and education resources;
- Be a communication hub, inspiring advocacy in the Maine Conference UCC;
- Listen for the concerns people of color face in Maine and beyond, and seek to take action; and
- Discover how the “New Jim Crow” manifests itself in Maine and ways to respond.
