Now is the time to rise above the hate and show empathy, compassion and love. As a caring mom, I encourage my daughter to be kind and respectful to family and friends. Be like Stella! Be kind. If you have witnessed or experienced micro-aggressions, bullying, harassment, hate speecH or violence, speak out. The Maine Human Rights Act is the anti-discrimination law and we have the power to stop hate, stand up and do what is right. Now is the time to show love and support each other. Thank you.
