Beyond the Click: Opportunities for Social Change (Biddeford)
March 12, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Beyond the Click: Connecting You With Real World Opportunities for Social Change is a cause fair where Biddeford, Saco, and Old Orchard Beach area residents can find out about local opportunities to get involved.
This event encourages a hyperlocal approach, focusing on actions, events, and organizations in the Biddeford, Saco, OOB area, with a mission to unite anti-racist progressives toward social action of their own choosing. We encourage a non-partisan, broad-based effort toward engaging citizens to create a more engaged, aware, and informed community.
Participating Organizations (to be updated as others sign up):
Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project
Maine People’s Alliance
Maine Unitarian Universalist State Advocacy Network (MUUSAN)
Pierson’s Lane Garden
Planned Parenthood Biddeford
3:30 – Welcome
3:40 – Brief introductions from each organization
4:00 – “Round Robin” in-depth 10-minute visits at three booths
4:30 – Open Fair
If you are only available for part of the event, 4:30 is the best time to come, but you are welcome to visit at any time. It will be set up so you can get information whether you’re there for ten minutes or the full hour and a half.
After this event, Heart of Biddeford’s annual Community Souper will take place from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Pepperell Center (40 Main Street), the proceeds of which go to the local food pantries. Questions about the Souper should be directed to Heart of Biddeford director Delilah Poupore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you run a non-profit organization in the Biddeford and Saco area and want to get involved, or have questions about the event, please reach out to Abigail Cioffi at email@example.com or Stephanie Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
