Civil Rights Team
The foundation of the Civil Rights Team Project is the Maine Civil Rights Act, which protects people from threats, property damage, and violence motivated by bias. The mission of the Civil Rights Team Project is to increase the safety of school students by reducing bias-motivated behaviors and harassment in schools.
- Civil rights issues covered by the school’s Civil Rights Team include:
- Race and skin color
- National origin and ancestry
- Gender (including identity and expression)
- Sexual orientation
The Civil Rights Team Project encourages school communities to engage in this important work, so that students of all identities feel safe, welcome, and respected for who they are.201909131352
