Rachel Talbot Ross, Assistant House Majority Leader, Maine House of Representatives and Maulian Dana, Penobscot Nation Tribal Ambassador
Free and open to all.
Join us for the annual Donna M. Loring Lecture, which addresses current or historic Native American or aboriginal issues, indigenous rights, as well as women’s issues, civil rights, and issues of fairness and equality as they overlap with the concerns of tribal peoples.

The Permanent Commission on the Status of Racial, Indigenous, and Tribal Populations was established in 2019 to examine systemic racial disparities in Maine and advise all three branches of Maine government on public policy changes that would make racial equity a central consideration in Maine lawmaking.Why is the Commission needed? What has it accomplished thus far, and what urgent matters is it taking up this fall? Through informal conversation with Donna Loring and audience Q&A, the guest speakers will address these and other important questions.
