Statewide events announcements slide

The Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC) invites the public to hear its recommendations during a forum in Machias on Wed., May 13, 11:30 a.m.

“The Mandate and Beyond: Recommendations of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare TRC” will take place at the University of Maine at Machias, in Room 102 of the Science Building.

This is the third in a series of five visits across the state by the commissioners and staff to talk about the TRC process, review lessons learned from their research findings and offer their recommendations. The events lead up to the release of the TRC’s report during the “Closing Ceremony of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare TRC: Moving Forward with Truth, Healing and Change,” on Sun., June 14, 2 p.m., in Hermon.

The TRC will be joined by members of REACH, a cross-cultural collaborative that both created the TRC and will be ensuring that the Commission’s recommendations are considered and implemented. REACH will discuss the findings and identify ways people can get involved in continuing the work of truth, healing and change.

Attendees will be invited to make comments and ask questions.
