A recent achievement includes the creation of SNAHP!– Solidarity Network Against Hunger and Poverty. This group is built on lived experience and gathers every other week to build organizational and activist skills with each other, all while planning community care, mutual aid, popular education, and legislative and policy changes.
Our top priority has been helping Maine families achieve economic security as we move through the pandemic.
“Right now, we are focused on helping Mainers understand and activate in support of Paid Family & Medical Leave; it’s one of the most important systems we can change to improve gender equity from both the health and economic perspectives.”
MPRC-trained volunteers have been part of successful legislative campaigns in the past year around drug policy reform and affordable housing “
“We are a member of MaineShare because we are committed to the idea that social justice organizations should be funded to the greatest extent possible by everyday people for whom policy reforms matter most. “
One success in the past year we are proud of is winning “a full dental care benefit for customers of MaineCare”
