In keeping with Highlander’s long history of support for the civil rights movement, and our ongoing work for civil and human rights, members of our  staff participated in a variety of events related to Martin Luther King Day in February.

  • On January 22-23, Elandria visited UNE’s University Campus in Biddeford, Maine. She delivered a keynote address on “Constructing Democracy,” led a discussion on “Racism and Oppression in our Community?” and facilitated a “Leadership for Activism” Workshop.
  • On January 30-31, Anasa visited UNE’s Westbrook College Campus in Portland, Maine. She delivered a keynote address on “Why We Can’t Wait,” and facilitated workshops on “Initiating Conversations: Tools for Change” and “Engaging Communities through the Arts.”
