Maine SSN Builds Relationships with Policymakers

About the chapter

Maine SSN was launched in 2012 with engaged scholars from public and private colleges and universities. As Maine is a geographically expansive state with strong participatory traditions, we meet in different locales, often in conjunction with civic organizations. Among our interests are tax policy, policies promoting opportunity for the poor and middle class, health care, immigration, and challenges for American democracy. Members contribute to a biweekly column and blog, Research Shows, in the Bangor Daily News.
