Maine Equal Justice Partners to Hold Listening Session in Bangor on Oct. 12, 2016 in place of Annual Advocacy Conference

Do You Help People with Low Income?

Case Managers | Social Workers | Legal Aid Providers | Advocates | Home Visitors

Are your clients stuck in broken systems?

Housing  |  Food  |  Health Care  |  Income


What do your clients need?

Please join Maine Equal Justice Partners to set our legislative agenda for 2017.

Tell us what would make these systems better for Mainers with low income. We need to know what really matters to your clients and what would make a difference. This interactive afternoon session will help us identify and prioritize policy changes that would most benefit Mainers with low income.

We’ll discuss the most basic needs – housing, food, health care, and income. We know you have a lot to say about these issues, and we need your voice. As we identify ways to change the systems that keep poor people stuck, you will get to connect with partners in these efforts and share resources, strategies, and ideas about how to do this important work well

 What about MEJP’s Advocacy Conference?

This year, we are doing things differently. Instead of the Advocacy Conference, we are holding listening sessions and changing how we offer trainings. Some of the best parts of the Advocacy Conference included the chance to connect with others doing social justice work around the state and the chance to expand your advocacy toolkit with workshops and trainings. We hope these listening sessions will provide a chance to network, share resources, and create systemic change. Your team can continue to expand your knowledge by requesting training from MEJP staff. We will work with you to make sure you get the information you need to do your best work! Contact MEJP’s Training Coordinator, Karen, at 626-7058 ext. 205 or [email protected] for more information.
