Maine Immigrant and Refugee Services (MEIRS) is honored to be a partner in the Communities Against Hate Initiative.
Maine Communities Against Hate’s priority is to lessen the ongoing surge in hate incidents in Maine and its negative impact on our society through a public awareness campaign and outreach to affected communities.
We are also documenting hate incidents, providing a powerful tool to combat the commission of hate crimes and hate violence in the United States. This will help to:
- Protect the rights of communities that are most vulnerable;
- Connect victims of hate incidents to services while also protecting their privacy;
- Using data collection of hate incidents as a tool for education and policy change;
