Many Maines, Migration & Borders, Race & Ethnicity, Wabanaki Voices.
Maine’s bicentennial year is an invitation to take stock, to look back with new eyes at what’s already happened, to look around with renewed care at what’s happening now, and to grapple with big questions.
We listened to communities around the state and chose four interrelated themes for our engagement with the bicentennial: Many Maines, Migration & Borders, Race & Ethnicity, Wabanaki Voices. Throughout 2020 and beyond, we aim to be a resource for a wide range of rich discussions in partnership with people and organizations all over Maine.
How can you join the discussion?
Host a book group at your work, at your library, or in your community. People tell us MHC book group discussions enable people to meet each other more fully and deepen their understanding of themselves and the people around them.
Apply for a grant! What are you working on? How can we help? We award grants to projects all over Maine that reflect the many and various backgrounds, communities, and cultures of our state.
