Team Project

Reducing bias-motivated behaviors in Maine's schools

MHC is proud to collaborate with the Civil Rights Team Project (CRTP), a program based in the Attorney General of Maine’s office.

The only program of its kind nationwide, the CRTP’s mission is to increase the safety of elementary, middle level, and high school students by reducing bias-motivated behaviors and harassment in our schools.

The CRTP accomplishes this by supporting student civil rights teams in Maine’s schools. The CRTP and the student civil rights teams are active in identifying and addressing issues of bias in our school communities, especially those related to:

  • Race and color
  • National origin and ancestry
  • Religion
  • Physical and mental disabilities
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
