The Mount Desert Island Racial Equity Working group (REWG) Mission statement:
We are a group of Mount Desert Island residents who aim to deepen our understanding of power and privilege and to foster racial justice, equity, and inclusion on MDI and beyond, always recognizing our shared humanity.
- Educate ourselves and the MDI community on racial justice, equity, and inclusion.
- Explore and organize local programs that increase understanding of historical and structural racism.
- Research, devise, and advocate for practices and policies to foster racial justice, equity, and inclusion.
Please join in the urgent work of learning about and eliminating racial injustices in our island community and beyond.
