Werrbach Joins Truth and Reconciliation Commission

Channel 2 (WLBZ), Channel 7 (WVII) and the Bangor Daily News reported on the Feb. 12 swearing in ceremony held in Hermon for the new five-member Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which includes University of Maine School of Social Work Director Gail Werrbach. The commission will report to the Maine Legislature on an earlier practice by state government and churches of placing Native American children in foster care or special schools, ostensibly to accelerate their integration into a broader society.
