We Are Maine - March and Rally
Thursday, May 21, 2015 - Portland, ME
5:30PM (March - Corner of Pearl St & Congress St) - 6PM (Monument Square - Congress St)
There are currently proposals going though the Maine Statehouse that unfairly target our immigrant, poor, and disabled communities. If passed these proposals would eliminate General Assistance Funds, Food Stamps, SSI, and TANF for certain immigrant groups. Additionally the budget for the General Assistance Fund will be slashed by 40%.
We believe in a Maine that works for everyone across all our differences. Stand together to stop current proposals that would leave Mainers without food and shelter by joining us for our “We are Maine” March and Rally on Thursday, May 21st.
