Join us for a day of exploring what it means to use a diversity of tactics in grassroots organizing and campaigns, how power and privilege play out in which tactics people feel are necessary, and how our choices and reaction to others' choices impact coalition building.
Changing Maine is an annual meet up of roughly 80-100 organizers, activists, and nonprofit workers who come together to explore different topics that affect social change.
COST:Suggested donation for the day is on a sliding scale between $0--$50. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. If you don’t have a lot of money, feel free to pay on the lower end or pay nothing. If you have more money, please consider paying more and taking part in class solidarity.

WHAT IS CLASS SOLIDARITY?Class refers to where you fit into the world regarding finances (for example: poor, working class, middle class, wealthy). This event is put together on a shoestring budget so we can make sure it's accessible to all. If you are someone who can pay more to attend so others can pay less, please consider doing so. If you do so, you will be taking an action of solidarity and making the event more accessible for people who cannot afford to pay much.
No matter what you pay, there is no judgment. Pay what you can but most importantly come!
