- Support Maine’s Clean Elections program. Keep big money out of our campaigns! Donate $5 to local and state-level candidates who are running “clean” to help them qualify for a publicly-funded campaign. It’s very easy to do online. Go to https://www5.informe.org/cgi-bin/online/ethics/cleanelection/home.pl.
- Make your volunteer commitments. This is a critical year if we are to succeed in taking back our country from the anti-democratic, pro-divisive forces that currently hold power. You can make a big difference. Be a campaign volunteer; local candidates who support the values espoused by Indivisible-Boothbay need your help. Who among your acquaintances, friends, neighbors, and relatives needs coaxing to become politically engaged? Finally, what help can you lend to the work of Indivisible-Boothbay? Make a promise to yourself to do more this year than you’ve ever done before.
- From the University of New England: It’s time and past that Mainers really absorb this part of Maine’s history with the tribes of Maine. We need to help right some wrongs and part of doing that is educating ourselves on and understanding our shared history. Please click on the link below for the video of Monday’s lecture.
