Our mission

Over the last several years there have been a number of incidents of anti-immigrant harassment, bullying, and threatened violence. This is a problem that affects all of us, not just the 8,000 residents from countries across East and West Africa. Harassment and violence are also a problem for the LGBTQ community, women, and other cultural and religious groups.

Green Dot LA believes that by educating our community about the prevalence and impact of hate threats and behaviors, and by training community members in how to recognize and safely handle these hate threats and behaviors, we can make Maine’s second largest urban area safer, more welcoming, and increasingly tolerant for all peoples.
