Organizing in Maine

Post submitted by Karl Bach, Former HRC Senior Regional Field Organizer

Yesterday, 22 student organizers met at Colby College in Waterville to discuss how to engage students in the marriage campaign. The meeting was hosted by the Colby Bridge and students from 7 campuses attended including University of Maine Orono, Bates, University of Southern Maine-Gorham and University of Maine Farmington.

Students made plans to schedule early vote days on campus, class presentations and how to build leadership teams on campus. If you want to learn how you can join this effort on your campus, please contact Karl at

Do you want to join in the effort in Maine to win the freedom to marry this year?

Do you have time this fall, but live out of state and don't know how you can help win marriage in Maine? Come for a week of "Volunteer Vacation" and have a life-changing experience. You will be trained and work side-by-side with experienced campaign staff and other volunteers to do critical work to ensure that we win in November. Not only will you walk away with memories of amazing fall foliage, but you will come away with new or honed campaign skills and friends in Maine. As part of the program, we provide a home-stay, and travel assistance may be available.

Can't stay for a whole week? We'll be offering weekend-long opportunities in October and November.Do you live in Maine? We are looking for hosts! Please fill out the below form and we will be in touch with you to answer any questions.

No matter where you live, you can make a difference in Maine.  HRC has set up a special fund – HRC Maine Families PAC – to direct 100 percent of your contribution to help win marriage equality in Maine.  Together, we can mobilize the majority of Mainers who support marriage equality and win at the ballot this November.
