AUBURN — “The Content of Our Character: Moving Forward as a Community,” an interactive workshop offered by Auburn Public Library, will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 6, online via Zoom.

The workshop is a call to create economic belonging for all Mainers through inclusive, equitable, truth-based and authentic multi-racial coalitions. In this session, the historical routes of the disparities seen today will be addressed and ways that all Mainers can use their privilege will be identified, wherever and however it exists, to advance equity for all.

Krystal Williams, an attorney and entrepreneur in Portland, will be the presenter. Her law firm, Providentia Group, focuses on making Maine’s economy work for more Mainers, particularly individuals who identify as Mainers of color or who live in rural Maine. In 2020, she founded the Alpha Legal Foundation to address the lack of diverse attorneys in legal leadership and scholarship in Maine.

Part of the Maine Humanities Council’s “World in Your Library” series, this program is made possible by a grant from the council.

To register or for more information, contact the reference desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4, or [email protected]. The Zoom link will be sent on the day of the program.
