Werrbach Named to Truth and Reconciliation Commission

In December, Associate Professor of Social Work Gail Werrbach was named as one of five members of the newly established Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission. She and the other commissioners — alumnus Matthew Dunlap, UMaine adjust instructor gkisedtanamoogk, Sandra White Hawk and Carol Wishcamper — will be seated in a ceremony Feb. 12 in Hermon. Maine’s truth and reconciliation commission, the first of its kind in the nation, will make recommendations on how the Maine child welfare system can work better with Wabanaki people.
