The Concent of Our Character: Moving Forward as a Community
This interactive workshop is a call to create economic belonging for all Mainers through inclusive, equitable, truth-based, and authentic multi-racial coalitions. In this session, we will address the historical routes of the disparities seen today and identify ways that all Mainers can use their privilege -- wherever and however it exists -- to advance equity for all. This program will be presented by Krystal Williams. Krystal is an attorney and entrepreneur in Portland, Maine. Her law firm, Providentia Group, focuses on making Maine's economy work for more Mainers, particularly individuals who identify as Mainers of color or who live in rural Maine. In 2020, she founded the Alpha Legal Foundation to address the lack of diverse attorneys in legal leadership and scholarship in Maine. Part of the Maine Humanities Council's World in Your Library series, this program is made possible by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council.
