Indigenous People’s Advocacy

Formed in 2018, the Indigenous People’s Advocacy Committee (IPAC), an action arm of WMCN, promotes critical analysis of historical representations and increased understanding of contemporary challenges facing Indigenous Peoples, including those who lived on the land now recognized as Winchester. IPAC also advocates with other grassroots groups for the rights of Indigenous Peoples at the town and state level.
