Maine has a long history of immigration. From people seeking work, to people seeking religious freedom, it is important to remember Maine's history of immigration when thinking about modern situations.
What does it mean to be a Mainer?
The Holocaust and Human Rights Center taught Global Maine about xenophobia and its history. We discusses what it means to be American and what it means to be a Mainer (and if those terms can even be defined!)
