I am a member of the Southern Maine Worker Center becuase they are great organizers. I know this from experience, because in the beginning all I wanted to do was mindless tasks of data entry. But they were radically welcoming. They asked my opinion on things and were always inviting me to meetings.
I eventually showed up to one of those meetings and got involved in the Earned Paid Sick Day campaign. Within a week they had me organizing a canvas. They built up my confidence to give public testimony and write press statements. Because I was given trust and the chance to help I have grown so much. I feel empowered to make a difference in my own life, and I now know there is a community I can turn to if I ever need support.
Please join me in supporting the worker center, and all the wonderful work they do.
