Current Project Highlights

 Changing Maine Directory

www.ChangingMaine.org

Maine's grassroots resource for non-profits and change agents
 

 

Visit the Changing Maine Directory (CMD) to see an extensive list of non-profit organizations and grassroots groups working to make Maine a healthier, more just, more peaceful place. Each listing includes detailed descriptions and the most up-to-date contact information for what will soon be over 1,500 non-profit, grassroots, progressive, social change, and social service organizations and agencies throughout the State of Maine. Currently being updated to its seventh edition, the print version of the CMD will soon follow the final updates to the new website, which are slated to be finished by spring 2016. Previously called the Maine Alternative Yellow & Green Pages, since 1986 ROSC has continuously worked to keep this directory's entries current, accurate and relevant to help empower folks looking to create positive, meaningful social change.

Down to Earth Climate Justice Storytelling Project

  

ROSC is a proud fiscal sponsor of Andy Burt's Down to Earth Climate Justice Storytelling Project, which is capturing stories on film that can connect people everywhere to the growing climate justice movement. The film will be the centerpiece of a larger project meant to inspire, motivate, and move people to act on climate in their own communities. Some of the plans of this project include:

  • The creation of a journaling workbook that draws from the filmed stories and may guide people into deeper personal and community commitment to climate and social justice activism
  • A four-week experience that includes four workshops featuring the film, invited guest activists, visioning exercises, and time for sharing workshop participants' own stories arising out of daily journaling in the workbook guide.
  • A virtual workshop experience similar to the one described above.
  • A two-hour workshop including the film and time for reflection on filmed stories that spoke to audience members.
  • A handout with opportunities for further reflection and action steps and resources.
