In Her Presence
In Her Presence is created by and for women from minority communities in Maine. Through increased educational opportunities and providing access to knowledge through high level training, our goal is to empower more women and girls to reduce systems of inequity, to advocate for themselves and their families, understand, analyze and assess and the impact of racial injustices and learn tools to combat inequities.
The ultimate goal is to be responsive, pro-active and to continuously seek ways for the women participants themselves to grow in leadership and advocacy for themselves and others. The ultimate mission and goal of the organization is to support women, girls and families to navigate this process, engage immigrant communities civically so they can advocate for their own rights, create intentional outcomes and effect change.
