Event description
As we imagine and build a just domestic society, we must ask ourselves this: what do human rights look like here in the state of Maine?

About this event

On December 10, as the world celebrates International Human Rights Day, Maine will join that effort by exploring the way in which the securing of human rights can help transform our society here at home.

Human rights defenders the world over have begun to imagine a new path forward. A path that is inherently collaborative, rather than extractive; that centers and prioritizes local experience rather than recreating hierarchical structures; and that weaves partnership across points of impact rather than each organization going it alone. This mission of human rights advocacy understands that multiple lenses and voices are required to create a truly just global society. As such, at the same time we are elevating voices of system-impacted people to cultivate a just society on a national scale, we must also turn our attention to local-level issues and leaders that connect all of us to this wider conversation.

In this new imagining of a just domestic society, the question remains: What do human rights look like here in the state of Maine?

This year, the Maine Human Rights Summit will aim to connect, celebrate, resource, and inspire those who identify themselves to be Human Rights Defenders. Our theme, Cultivating Presence in Maine’s Human Rights Ecosystem, will gather community leaders, organizers, artists, healers and more to interrogate how human rights have shifted throughout Maine’s history, map where efforts are currently mobilizing to protect them, and provide insight into their visions for what a human rights ecosystem can look like. At this time, Maine Human Rights Defenders are grappling with the realities of ongoing crises and their disproportionate effects on marginalized and system-impacted communities around the state. From these challenges arise crucial insight into what is needed in order to achieve a collective vision of equity and justice in the face of adversity.

This conference is open to all organizers, leaders, educators, students, and community members interested in learning more about human rights
