Hi Friends and Family!
I've invited you to this page to help raise money for the Southern Maine Worker's Center, the place where I volunteer and organize for social and economic rights in Maine with an AMAZING group of people from Portland and beyond.
While the Worker’s Center does so much incredible work – including offering free legal services through our worker’s legal clinics and worker support hotline, to advocating for earned paid sick days in Portland – I am most involved with our work on healthcare. At SMWC we believe healthcare is a HUMAN RIGHT, and that no one should go without care because they cannot afford it. Currently, this belief is manifest in our campaign to add a dental benefit to MaineCare, the state’s low-income health insurance option (and fyi, thanks to our amazing organizers and collaborating groups, we’re kicking ass on this front!).
So please, help this great organization continue to do the work it does and donate what you can; any amount helps!
In love, and solidarity,
***Maybe you noticed this is also a Karaoke fundraiser. SO FUN. Maybe you also know I work evenings and will never have a Saturday night off as long as I continue to work in a restaurant. So maybe there won’t be a big musical number from me after all… BUT IF YOU DONATE I’LL CALL YOU UP AND SING YOU A SONG ANY FRICKIN’ TIME YOU LIKE!
