Thanks to Val Marsh of the University of Maine at Augusta Office of Civic Engagement for bringing a great student activist opportunity to my attention. On April 8 2014 in the Maine State House, UMA students have the opportunity to make their case to state legislators regarding a social or political issue they care about. Students only need to bring themselves, relevant literature and a poster board with information about their cause of choice. The Hall of Flags is right in the middle of the legislative action, being situated right underneath the dome of the state house, so this opportunity for student organizing can’t be beat.
If you’ve got questions or want to get involved, contact Coordinator of Civic Engagement Valerie Marsh at 207-621-3158 or just drop by her office in the Randall Student Center Room 210.
