Happy Martin Luther King Day!
Don't forget to join the march this afternoon from Prebble Street to City Hall, beginning at 2:00 p.m. The march and
rally are hosted by the NAACP.
March Against Anti-Immigrant LePage Executive Order!
This Monday, Jan. 17, 1pm in Portland!
Last week, Maine became less welcoming to immigrants and refugees when Governor Lepage signed an Executive Order allowing state officials to inquire about immigration status of those who approach their agencies. Our nation and state have always been beacons of liberty and freedom. Nobody should freeze to death, starve to death or die of a treatable disease because they are afraid to approach state officials.
Let’s model a Welcoming Maine!
What: Community Conversation at 1pm followed by a March at 2pm
Where: Preble Street Resource Center, March to City Hall
Who: At City Hall at 2:15pm, come hear community leaders speak about Lepage's first action as Governor, and find out ways to take action.
Maine should be a welcoming place so our economy and communities can thrive. Join us Monday at 1pm at Preble Street for a community conversation. In the tradition of community action on Martin Luther King Day, the community conversation will be followed by a march. Join us at 2pm to march from Preble Street to City Hall. We will stand in solidarity and model a welcoming Maine.
Hope to see you there!!!
