In these times of troubling examples of the growing divisions within our country, many people are wondering what they can do to help heal. The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine has been working hard to collect resources and recommendations that individuals can use to contribute to changing attitudes. The most important step is learning about our individual biases and how they contribute to the problem. This program will build on HHRC’s work with teachers and students. HHRC Associate Director David Greenham will use activities, videos, and discussion to help us all understand and confront bias in ourselves and those we love. Classroom
