About Momentum Conservation

Commitment to Equity and Inclusion

Momentum is committed to building more inclusive and equitable conservation and environmental movements in Maine. We are actively leaning into the intersection of the environment, conservation, and social equity, and we are committed to weaving this intersection through all of our work. We are continuously learning about our blind spots and unconscious biases. We know that biases and disparities disproportionately burden communities of color, indigenous communities, people with physical and mental disabilities, and low-income communities with legacies of environmental damage and ongoing harm. It is our duty to ensure that our work does not propagate destructive, damaging practices, and instead is addressing barriers and fixing inequitable systems.

Our organizational values are Connection, Humility, Courage, Justice, and Equity. We are currently working to live our values and, during this period of growth, our intention is to integrate our values into all elements and systems of work.
