DRM Statement in Solidarity

Disability Rights Maine is in solidarity with all who condemn the horrific killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of police and all ongoing systemic violence against black men and women, African Americans, and all communities of color.

Disability Rights Maine rejects white supremacy and rejects racism.

We value equality, inclusion, racial and disability justice, civil rights and human rights, for all.

Disability Rights Maine recognizes that we must each continually examine our own privilege and our role in and power to create change.

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” Desmond Tutu

"Reflect on why we must combat capitalism, racism, classism and ableism that thinks so little of humanity that some people are reduced to expected losses. There is a lot to do and it’s going to take all of us." Stacey Park Milbern (1987 – 2020)
