November Meeting Wednesday, November 13, 6:30 p.m. YWCA MDI 36 Mount Desert Street, Bar Harbor, Maine 04609 ** AGENDA CHANGE***
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Jessica Stewart is unable lead de-escalation training this month. We hope to schedule her de-escalation training at a later date. We will start our meeting by singing a couple impeachment songs, led by the incomparable Bobbie Goldman, learn about the Bar Harbor Climate Emergency, talk about National Indivisible’s Endorsement of Candidates (and what we want them to do with respect to their endorsements) and Jayne Ashworth will provide an overview of the Deep Canvassing/Bridging the Gap training that we hope to bring to MDI in January or February.
Children’s play area available. Cookies will be served. Come, learn, and bring a friend!
