Many of us are on an active learning journey to deepen equity by disrupting colonial structures and traditional charitable models of ‘the way we do things. We’re asking questions like – who is leading, who is making decisions, and who has access to resources? And how can we shift power in ways that are meaningful and don’t inadvertently cause harm?
The Elmina B. Sewall Foundation (Sewall) is on this learning journey and has been exploring different ways they can transform themselves and how they work. Based in Maine, Sewall seeks to improve the well-being of people, animals, and the environment while fostering relationships that strive for social equity and community resilience. Join this conversation with Gabriela Alcade, Lauress Lawrence, and representatives from community organizations to hear about the strategies being used in their work in Lewiston-Auburn and Wabanaki communities, and their experiences about what is working, and what they are learning along the way.
