Bangor Community Listening Session
Monday, November 28, 2022 - 12:03
The Permanent Commission on the Status of Racial, Indigenous and Tribal Populations is hosting a community listening session in Bangor on December 19, 2022, from 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. This event is intended to provide an opportunity for the Permanent Commission to hear directly from racial, Indigenous, and tribal populations about their lived experiences related to disparities caused by structural racism in Maine. The community listening session will be the first in an ongoing series and is part of the Permanent Commission’s goal to build the capacity of overburdened communities to identify issues that affect their communities and participate in, influence, and take on leadership roles in related decision-making processes. Additionally, these listening sessions are intended to build solidarity and strengthen statewide networks among individuals and organizations across all communities, especially those traditionally excluded from these conversations. Dinner and childcare will be provided on-site.
