Hi all! I'm raising money for one of the rad organizations I work with here in Maine, the Southern Maine Workers' Center. The SMWC does a lot of important work for working and poor folks in the city of Portland and the entire state of Maine.
The SMWC advocates for universal health care and universal earned paid sick time policies, provides legal counseling to workers, helps people organize at their workplaces, and provides education to members and the public on issues facing our working class communities. I personally volunteer with the earned paid sick time committee!
The SMWC is currently hosting a karaoke fundraising event so that they can continue to advocate for and provide services to working folks in Maine. If I reach my goal of raising $500, I will sing "Rebel Rebel" by David Bowie at the karaoke event on February 9th. I might even post a video of it online if I have a large number of donors from outside of Maine!
