    Description: At the Workers' Center we believe that cultivating grassroots power is key to campaigns for social justice, like our Paid Sick Leave & Healthcare is a Human Right campaign. We are committed to empowering the working class people of Portland through basebuilding and transformative organizing. Outreach is how we connect to members of our community in order to further our mission to collectively make lasting, systemic change.

    Come join members of the Work With Dignity & Healthcare is a Humanright Committee this Saturday morning for bagels, and solidarity. We will be working with you to learn about our outreach model, and how to talk about our newest campaign for Paid Sick Leave and our staple work for Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign. We'll examine our human rights framework and organizing tool.

    If you're looking for ways to affect tangible, meaningful, transformative, and lasting political change from the bottom up - our volunteer outreach squad is the right place for you!

  • Shifting Politics and Possibilities: HCHR Report Update
    Starts: 10:00 am
    Ends: April 22, 2017 - 12:00 pm
    Location: 68 Washington Ave, Portland, ME 04101, USA
    Description: Universal Healthcare is having its moment. As conservative policy makers continue to defend a system that wreaks havoc on poor and working class peoples, it's up to us to collectively lift up human rights discourse that challenges the for-profit healthcare model. In May, the Southern Maine Workers' Center will release a report on our Healthcare is a Human Right campaign that's been years in the making. Join us for breakfast and solidarity on April 22nd as we examine key findings from our report, the human rights framework that gives us our power, and our newly crafted (and very exciting) policy recommendations. We need our members feedback and support to help us across the finish line and beyond. Together, we can leverage our report to shift what's politically possible and make universal healthcare a winning issue in Maine.

    Please coordinate with (344-4485) if you need a ride or have childcare needs!
